Funding

Unfortunately YEE doesn’t have any funds to provide the interns with financial support, this is why we only accept young people who already have received scholarships and grants for the internship, or are planning to apply for before the start of the internship.

We don’t accept volunteers that are already based in Prague, because we don’t have means for covering their costs on this position.

If you are interested in this opportunity, check the possible funding opportunities in your home town or university. We encourage you to check the Erasmus+ programme for grants possibilities.
