Last Call for 2012 EU Visitors Program Applications
Feb 16, 2011
The deadline for the 2012 European Union Visitors Program (EUVP) is March 1. The long-standing program provides young professionals with a unique opportunity to learn from the inside how the European institutions work. Participants meet with specialists in fields of their choice as they follow extensive programs tailored specifically to their interests in the EU.
The 5-8 day program in Brussels, Strasbourg, and/or Luxembourg is jointly sponsored and administered by the European Parliament and the European Commission. Young professionals in government, media, education, business, and non-profits with career-related interests in the EU are encouraged to apply.
Those eligible to participate are government officials (local, state and federal), journalists, trade unionists, educators, officials of non-profit, non-governmental organizations and other professionals aged in their mid-20s to mid-40s with career-related interests in the European Union. Please note that the EUVP is not designed as a program for students: its participants are required to have completed their university education or equivalent training and to have been employed for several years in their chosen career field.
In addition to the United States, EUVP candidates are selected from a large number of non-EU countries throughout the world. Non-US applicants should contact the Commission Representation in the country in which they reside. (Source: European Union Delegation to the United States of America)
