Scholarship to participate in European Forum Alpbach

The European Forum Alpbach 2022 will take place from 21 August to 2 September 2022.

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.

In addition to the common conference programme, scholarship holders get to attend the Alpbach Seminars which are the academic heart of the European Forum Alpbach. The seminars run for two weeks during the forum. They take place in the mornings and are characterized by a participative atmosphere, an interdisciplinary approach and intergenerational dialogue. Scholarship holders can choose two seminars, which they attend each for one week. The interplay of scientific, creative and skill-orientated seminars, together with the programme of panels, workshops and plenary debates in the afternoons transforms Alpbach into a place of innovative knowledge transfer and holistic learning.

Please note: Scholarship holders are required to arrive on 20 August to join the scholarship welcome event.


Information about the next scholarship program will be announced in due time.
