Young European 2012


The Schwarzkopf-foundation is looking for young people from Europe between the ages of 18 and 26 who are imaginative and active in an honorary capacity engaged for the European understanding and integration. Young people prepared to grasp the opportunities of our time in forging peaceful coexistence in a Europe of diversity.

Each year with this prize the Schwarzkopf Foundation rewards a young European for his/her outstanding commitment to fostering international understanding and the union of Europe. At the same time we want to encourage and motivate these young people to continue to champion these ideals.

The sum donated for the prize is € 5.000. This amount is intended to finance a six-month internship with a Member of the European Parliament or another European institution. It is also possible to use the sum to finance a project which promotes European integration. Such a project must further the aims of the Schwarzkopf Foundation and receive the agreement of the Foundation’s Management board in order to be accepted.

The award-winner will be chosen by a jury of personalities from the European Youth Parliament, the European Parliament, the European Commission and the Schwarzkopf Young Europe Foundation.

Deadline for entries:  30 October 2011
