Scholarship for training on European law

The Academy of European Law (ERA) has set up a scholarship programme to supporting practitioners who would like to access legal training on European law.

The programme is being supported by the Friends of ERA and other partners.

It is designed to ensure that all legal practitioners from EU member states and candidate countries have the opportunity to participate in professional training on European law.

The scholarship programme is currently open for applications for events until the end of September.


Applications must be submitted, at the latest, two months (for face-to-face events), or one month (for online events) before the event.

Potential applicants should also note:

  • Scholarships are granted for only one event, and, in principle, candidates who have already received a scholarship will not be re-awarded a grant,
  • Scholarships do not apply to language courses,
  • Applicants should not register for an event before obtaining a decision on their scholarship application,
  • Applicants must submit an online application explaining how the course would be relevant for their legal practice, and why they are unable to cover the costs of participating.

Successful applicants will be asked to deliver a report on how they made use of the scholarship in their work.
