European Student ID
EU introduces European Student Card

The ID comes at no additional cost for students enrolled at higher education institutions and is valid for their entire period of study.


Application Tip #45
Can I apply for conference funding to support our annual association's meeting?

No, grants can be made for specific projects only; they cannot be made to institutions or be used for annual meetings of societies or solely to finance publications. Projects to be funded must be of limited duration, have a clearly defined goal, and, as a general rule, must be carried out within the applicable calendar year.
