BRUSSELS – The European Students’ Union (ESU) is opening the second edition of the small grants programme ‘Together, Moving Forward’, empowering positive refugee-host interactions across Europe.
ESU will fund student and refugee-led initiatives at local, national and/or international level. Projects can be funded for any sum up to 10,000 EUR (12,000 EUR for international activities). The deadline for the 1st stage of applications is 15th of April 2018.
“We encourage student-led groups, especially ESU members, local students’ unions, as well as refugee-led or migrant-led organisations to apply for a grant. If you are an informal group of students, you can contact a local or national union of students, or another established organisation and ask for their support. “ says Francesca Bragagnolo, Project Manager, ESU.
Unfortunately, we are still confronted with uneven progress made by European governments and education systems, and perhaps an even more polarized public discourse regarding refugees and migrants. As an organisation fighting for quality education for all, we continue our efforts to promote viable options for refugees and asylum seekers to access education, and be part of our communities.
With this programme, ESU wants to inspire change and:
ESU kicked off this programme in the winter of 2016. Since then, the organisation supported several valuable projects, shared views with resourceful activists and creative change-makers.
