EPS Young Minds Sections can apply for Activity Grants, totalling up to 1000€ per year. The deadlines for the application are January 15 and June 30 of each year.
The EPS Young Minds Project is currently supporting the following categories of activities:
- Professional Development: technical sessions, seminars, lectures.
- Networking: events held to promote your Section, to strengthen social ties, to network with scientists, professionals and companies, and recruit new members.
- Outreach: youth and adult education events including classroom demonstrations, science fairs, etc.
Setting up of matching funds schemes is highly encouraged and strongly increases the chances of obtaining the grants. In order to apply for these grants, the Section needs to log in the EPS Young Minds Website and fill in the application forms for the correspondent grants.
To be eligible for YM grants every section needs to fill two forms before the grants deadline:
- the Section CENSUS form, to confirm the Section members list (they should be members of EPS or one of its national societies);
- the Activities REPORT form, in order to report previous granted YM activities. The report consists of a title, a 250-500 words text and at list a picture. The submitted data will be uploaded from the YM webmaster as post on this website.
