We are addressing both

  • young people involved in rural development activities, who want to discover or improve their knowledge and their know-how in a particular field of sustainable rural development, and
  • organizations or entrepreneurs from rural areas, who would like to host young people to transmit them a particular knowledge and to share their experience.

The Scholarship Programme offers to the trainee to discover and learn from the experiences and practices of people and organisations dedicated to sustainable local and rural development, while spending a time in a place of his choice (according to the hosts availability).

Timing and Duration
This Forum Synergies scholarship programme period starts in April 2019 up to November 2019.
The scholarship should last ideally 1 month. A minimum of 2 weeks and maximum up to three months can be discussed on the basis of the proposed work programme and funds available.

Follow up
After taking part in the Scholarship Program, both, trainees and hosts, will be invited also to participate in European Rural Parliament to share the scholarship experience and for hosts it will be a possibility to promote their actions to interested public. Trainees will also be invited to participate in the European Rural Youth Parliament (9-11 November 2019, Cantabria, Espagne)
