Launch of the European Charlemagne Youth Prize 2021

Applications are now open for the Charlemagne Youth Prize 2021.  If you are aged between 16 and 30 and working on a project with a European dimension, you can apply and be in with a chance to win this prestigious prize!  The Charlemagne Youth Prize is organised by the European Parliament and the International Charlemagne Prize Foundation in Aachen.  Deadline: 22 February 2021

The three winning projects will be chosen from 27 projects nominated by national juries in each EU country.

The first prize is €7,500, second prize €5,000 and third prize €2,500. If the situation allows it, representatives of all 27 national winning projects will be invited to Aachen, Germany, in May 2021 where the award ceremony will take place.

The Prize is awarded to projects which:

  • promote European and international understanding,
  • foster the development of a shared sense of European identity and integration,
  • serve as a role model for young people living in Europe and offer practical examples of Europeans living together as one community.

The projects can focus on the organisation of various youth events, youth exchanges or online projects with a European dimension.
