Students from all European countries can take part in Seeds for Integration.

Can we apply without an organisation?

Yes, you can also apply as non-formal group. In that case you need to have at least one member who is 18 years old, who is going to sign the contract with OBESSU and be responsible for the project. Also, you need to have a bank account for payment in Euros run by an organisation (can be the student council, an organisation in your town or parents council – it cannot be an individual person’s account).

We are members of OBESSU. Can we apply both for pillar 1 and pillar 2?

Yes, you can. Just make sure your projects have impact on different levels.

What kind of activities can we organise?

For pillar 1 you can organize any kind of activity you want (training, photo exhibition, movie projection). When it comes to pillar 2 you should follow the instructions about the components of Inclusion Work Package. However, you have the freedom to organize the components in your own way.
