Young European of the Year
The award for the “Young European of the Year” is given to young Europeans aged between 18 and 26 years who have distinguished themselves in an exemplary manner concerning their honorary commitment and dedication in the support of international understanding and/or the integration of Europe.
The award sum is € 5.000. The award is intended to finance a six-month internship with a Member of the European Parliament or at another European institution. It is also possible to use the grant to finance a project which promotes European integration. Such a project has to follow the aims of the Schwarzkopf Foundation Young Europe and needs the approval of the Foundation’s board in order to be accepted.
The nominations for the Young European of the year take place in autumn. The prize is awarded by the Schwarzkopf Foundation Young Europe and the Representation of the European Commission in Germany in cooperation with the European Youth Forum.
