group travel grant

Our Group Travel grant will be awarded to a group planning a trip that will provide the participants with a deeper understanding of intercultural differences and allow them to embark on a journey contributing to their personal development. The trip must include an adventure, educational or volunteer component and take place outside of the group's place of residence.  

 

The travel project must show clear benefits both for the participants than the host community.

Spend 10 days in Toulouse with classmates and teachers to be part of an intensive stop-motion animation workshop was an amazing experience. On top of putting into practice the notions previously studied, we learned how to apply them to more complex, greater scale projects. The partners abroad allowed us to live an interesting and enriching experience, thanks to their ideas and mentorship.
