Our mission is to serve as a hub for Clubs, Initiative Groups and Alpbach Scholarship holders. We want to strengthen the European Idea by connecting people from different backgrounds and supporting them in their own projects.
We, the organizing board of the Forum Alpbach Network, are a group of young volunteers who believe in the unifying power of cultural and social exchange amongst young people from all around the world.
We connect and represent more than thirty clubs from all over Europe that are responsible for awarding more than 300 scholarships to the European Forum Alpbach each year.
We believe that only a young, diverse and critical Forum can realize its vision of creating intergenerational dialogue and supporting the idea of a peaceful and shared Europe. Alpbach Scholarship Programme – become part of Europe’s “Festival of Ideas”!
Every year, 700 students from about 90 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 can attend this leading interdisciplinary conference and a variety of academic seminars. A basic scholarship covers the participation fee to all events at the European Forum Alpbach. Additional subsidies are available for accommodation and daily allowances.
