The European Forum Alpbach Foundation (EFAF) was established on 15 November 2005 to support the objectives of the European Forum Alpbach. The Foundation funds Scholarships for the European Forum Alpbach with the aid of donations and it is based in Vienna.

The Scholarship Programme of the non-profit private Foundation of the European Forum Alpbach enables young people from across the world to come to Alpbach and to participate in the Forum. The scholarships vary and can range from a participation fee waiver to free room and board. Until today, hundreds of scholarship holders in Austria and more than 25 other countries have founded alumni groups, which run their own successful scholarship programmes. All in all, scholarship holders from almost 100 countries participate in the European Forum Alpbach every year.
