We have started receiving applications for the 2016 Civil Society Prize, which will reward projects supporting migrants and refugees. We are very happy to have already candidates from France, Germany, Italy and Spain. But we are looking forward to receiving many more from these and other Member States. If you or your organisation are involved in such projects, you can still enter until the 9th of September.
Remember: you can send us your application directly via email. Eligible projects may go from providing first relief to migrants to offering them language lessons, help with administrative procedures or any other actions aiming at their integration. The award consists of 50 000 euros to be shared between up to 5 winners. The prize award ceremony will take place on 15 December, during the EESC plenary session. Interested?
