About the Fellowship

Withdrawn from the programme

GEYC has a broad experience in the field of fellowships. In 2015, we have launched the call for the selection of three European Fellows in Human Rights, in the frame of No Hate Speech Movement, for a three phase chain-project (7 days Training Course on Human Rights in Bulgaria - Implementation of activities in Romania – Dissemination of the results in Georgia) that lasted from August until December of 2015.  After a great impact of the first edition, we have decided to organize a second one in 2016, which gave more young people the opportunity to get involved in this initiative.

After the successful impact of the European Fellowship on Human Rights programme initiated by GEYC in 2015, we have decided to focus our attention on Social Entrepreneurship and to launch a similar programme in this area. The main objective was to give participants the tools to have a positive impact in economic growth.

The most complex fellowship that we have intiated so far is the European Fellowship on Youth Leadership (EFYL), a programme of youth leadership having the duration of one year initiated under the aegis of PRISMA European Network in the frame of EECT project. The participants had a mix learning experience: training, job shadowing, practice, inspiration and peer-to-peer training.
