EFA Foundation | About the Scholarship Programme

Become part of Europe’s “Festival of Ideas”!

Every year, over 650 students from almost 100 nationalities participate as scholarship holders in the European Forum Alpbach. Join smart minds from around the world in a charming Alpine village, immersing yourself in an environment bursting with novel ideas, new ways of thinking and opportunities for making great contacts.

With the Alpbach Scholarship Programme, young people under 30 (or under 35 for African scholarship holders) can attend this leading interdisciplinary conference and a variety of academic and artistic seminars.

Due to the Covid-19 pandemic, no scholarship applications are accepted in 2021.

The finalists of the 2020 application round will be notified about the status of their scholarship applications in the second half of May 2021.

Updated information regarding this year’s Forum will be available soon.
