After a first successful edition, ESU has recently launched a second edition of Together, Moving Forward small-grants programme. The idea behind the programme is to support student-led initiatives with the aim to encourage positive host-refugees interactions across Europe. The objectives are, amongst others, to reshape the discourse around refugees, work with refugees and other stakeholders to improve access to Higher Education and living conditions, work for successful inclusion in our communities, build National Union of Students (NUSes) capacity to take up an active role in supporting or advocating for positive change.
A new call for projects was launched at the beginning of March 2018. The first deadline for project proposals is on the 15th of April 2018. You can read more about the programme and its functioning in the call for projects.
We are currently looking to form a Selection Committee that will be in charge of evaluation and selection of project applications. The committee will be composed of ESU alumni, students with refugee background, representatives or staff from organisations working in education or/and refugee issues, and a representative of ESU secretariat.
We are looking for individuals that have experience with project management and have some familiarity with the reality of forced migration in Europe, especially with concern to access to (higher) education but not only (see objectives of the call).
Selection Committee members should be available for online communication throughout 2018 (read the Call for more details).
The evaluation will be based on the selection criteria listed in the call and a matrix prepared by the secretariat. The reading of applications will be distributed among members of the Selection Committee. A Project Manager in ESU will support the work of the Selection Committee by providing overviews of the applications, dividing the workload between the different members, facilitating communication and sharing of information, as well as providing comments and summaries of applications.
There is currently no in-person meeting foreseen. Should an in-person meeting be considered necessary at some point, ESU will work to organise one and costs for participation will be covered.
Apply to become a member of the selection committee. Answer four quick questions at this link.
