The European Forum Alpbach Foundation awards around 300 scholarships yearly to international students and young graduates to participate in the European Forum Alpbach. The other 300+ scholarships, are awarded by the different Clubs and Initiative Groups, members of the Forum Alpbach Network (FAN). Each application submitted to the European Forum Alpbach Foundation, is reviewed by two members of an independent committee in order to ensure an objective rating process. The committee consists of different members from a variety of fields of academy, non-profits and the private sector. Out of all shortlisted candidates, the Scholarship Jury, a body of the European Forum Alpbach Foundation, selects each year’s final scholarship holders.
