Erasmus+ Programme and the European Solidarity Corps (ESC)
The Erasmus + Program is the EU's grant program in the fields of education, youth and sports. It supports education, training, internship, professional development, non-formal learning-based youth activities and cooperation between institutions.
The 2021 Call For Proposals for the Erasmus+ Programme has been launched. Public or private organizations and non-governmental organizations operating in the fields of education, training, youth and sports can apply for funding under the Erasmus+ within the scope of the Erasmus+ Programme Guide. In addition, youth groups that are active in youth work but are not legal entities can also apply for funding.
The European Solidarity Corps (ESC) provides opportunities for volunteering, networking and solidarity activities within projects that benefit the society.
It is a new European Union initiative that aims to meet social needs, creating opportunities for them to volunteer, work or engage in networking activities in projects that benefit society in their own countries or abroad while encouraging their professional development. The program is an added value to the Volunteering activity and other EU funding programs under the current Erasmus+ Program, formerly known as the European Voluntary Service (EVS).
In addition, it is recommended to follow the European Commission Executive Agency for central calls that are announced through special calls.
For the latest news and changes in the related call for proposals, it is recommended that you follow the news via www.ua.gov.tr and the announcements on our facebook, twitter and instagram addresses @ulusalajans.
Note: Participation of Programme Countries in Erasmus+ and ESC are officialized after the Participation Agreements are signed between the European Commission and relevant countries. No participation agreement has yet been signed for our country. In 2021, the acceptance of the project applications or the granting process for accepted projects depends on the signing of the participation agreement. In addition, if signing process is delayed, there may also be delays in grant allocations or payments.
