ENGAGE.EU aims at enabling everyone to experience Europe. The University of Mannheim Foundation supports this endeavor by providing ENGAGE.EU Grants to students who, for personal, economic, or health reasons, are not able to participate in the educational and mobility programs offered by the ENGAGE.EU partner universities.

How to apply

  • Requirements

    You can apply for an ENGAGE.EU Grant if you are studying a bachelor’s or master’s program at the University of Mannheim. We accept applications from all schools and semesters. When awarding the grants, we take into account your personal, economic, or health situation.

  • Funding

    Students can apply for a one-time travel and accommodation grant for participation in events held at ENGAGE.EU partner universities (e.g. workshops, summer schools). The maximum duration of eligible events is two weeks, and the amount of the grant depends on the country of travel (see call for applications under Downloads for country-specific rates). Additionally, participants can apply for a grant to cover attendance fees to the extent of 50% of the total amount and up to a maximum of 500 euros.

    The ENGAGE.EU Grant covers events from our partner universities that are not offered within the framework of ENGAGE.EU. For details on the specific programs offered by the ENGAGE.EU partner universities, please see the respective websites.
