Every year, the European Forum Alpbach awards scholarships to hundreds of outstanding young talents from all around the world. Our scholarship programme enables students, young professionals and changemakers to come to Alpbach and attend a unique programme consisting of scientific and artistic seminars, a high-level conference programme and a variety of social and cultural activities.
There are more than 30 alumni groups around the globe!
The European Forum Alpbach 2022 will take place from 21 August to 2 September 2022.
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.
