    European Youth Foundation - Grants

    The European Youth Foundation (EYF) is a fund established by the Council of Europe to provide financial support for European youth activities. It encourages co-operation among young people in Europe by providing financial support to youth activities promoting peace, understanding and co-operation in a spirit of respect for human rights, democracy, tolerance and solidarity.


    There are four kinds of grants open to different types of organisations: international activities (open to international, national, regional, NGOs/networks), annual work plans (open to international NGOs/networks), pilot activities (open to local, national, regional NGOs/networks), structural grants (open to international and regional NGOs/networks).

    Projects must fall under the Council of Europe’s Youth Sector Priorities for 2022/2025.

    1. Revitalising pluralistic democracy
    2. Young people’s access to rights
    3. Living together in peaceful and inclusive societies
    4. Youth work
    5. Intergovernmental co-operation on youth policy.


    The EYF may support the following operations:

    A. International activity – including meetings of young people or youth leaders in Europe to promote participation and intercultural learning. Participants must represent at least 7 Council of Europe member states. It has to be run by an international team (4 nationalities represented in the project team). The EYF will cover up to two-thirds of the total cost. Maximum grant: € 25,000.

    B. Annual work plan – including a series of activities over one year, interconnected and which contribute to the same broader aim. Each activity/element should contribute to the aim of the work plan and the accomplishments of the work plan as a whole should contribute to the global purpose of the organisation. These activities would be part of and support your NGO’s strategy or action plan for the coming years. Maximum grant: € 60,000.

Structural grant for 2 consecutive years – The European Youth Foundation may, every 2 years, grant international non-governmental youth organisations or networks a contribution to cover part of the general administrative costs involved in running their activities at European level.
