For more than ten years, Club Alpbach Senza-Confini has provided scholarships for the European Forum Alpbach (EFA) to highly motivated students and young professionals from Carinthia, Northern Italy and Slovenia. Last summer, it was our pleasure to welcome our 300th scholarship holder in Alpbach, a great success which we could only achieve thanks to the generous support of our numerous public and private sponsors.
We are a non profit organization and use all of our incomes to pay for the scholarships, accomodation at Alpbach and information events in the region. All of us are either full-time students or young professionals with a full agenda. Even though, we are passionate about working for the Club in our free time, because we believe in the idea of the European Forum Alpbach and are keen on promoting it in our region. Furthermore, we believe that it is crucial to form a vital network of young people in the Alpe Adria Region, who are critical, willingly to learn more and foster the EU spirit.
The three core tasks of our association are:
- Raise funds for the scholarships
- Organise informational events in our region
- Select the new scholarship holders
- To continue our work – and enable further ambitious young people to participate in the forum – we are always looking for supporters.
Our supporters can choose sponsoring packages. Their volumes range from a partial contribution to a scholarship to one or more full scholarships. In exchange, we can offer you privileged contact to our high-profile scholarship holders as well as public visibility at all our public events in the region and online.
1 full scholarship is made up of the following components:
700 € Participation Fee
550 € Bed and Breakfast
150 € Expenses
Remark: The European Alpbach Foundation grants us 700 € per scholarship. (Regularly, the participation fee is 1400 €). By contrast, supporting us with 1400 € enables us to pay participation fee AND accommodation for one scholarship holder.
