PLEASE NOTE: The deadline for applications is January 16th, 2013.

How to apply for a grant:

1. Contact your own National Agency to obtain information on the grant application procedures and to check the deadline for submitting your application. National Agency contact details can be found here.
2. Once you have selected the training event, contact the training organizer to check that places are still available. You may need to enclose confirmation of your provisional registration for the training with your grant application.  
3. Send your grant application form to your National Agency following the defined application procedure.  
4. Your National Agency will inform you if you have been awarded a grant, normally 7-10 weeks after the 
application deadline.  
5. You should then immediately contact the training provider to formally register for the course or to confirm your pre-registration. If you have not been awarded a grant but made a pre-registration, it is your responsibility to 
cancel this.  
6. From the moment your National Agency confirms that you have been awarded a grant, you have responsibilities towards the training provider. If you cancel your attendance at the event, you will be responsible for paying any cancelation fees which the training provider may claim. Only in very exceptional cases of force majeure (e.g. serious illness or death of the grant applicant or a family member) may your National Agency pay cancelation fees using grant money.  
7. If the training organizers cancel the training at short notice, you may ask him/her for compensation if you have already incurred costs. Neither your National Agency nor the European Commission can be liable. However, in justified cases your National Agency may decide to cover these costs using the grant awarded. If your training event is canceled, your National Agency may give you the opportunity to select another one (contact your Agency for further details).   
8. At the end of the training event, the organizers must hold an evaluation session. Your opinion on the quality of the training is important; training which is considered to be of poor quality can be further investigated by the 
National Agency.  
9. At the end of the training event, the organizers should distribute a course attendance certificate, which is proof of having carried out the training activity. 
10. Within 30 calendar days after the end of the activity you must send the Final Report to your Agency. Approval of the Final Report is the basis for formal settlement of the awarded grant. The Final Report form is downloadable 
from your Agency's website. 
The deadline for applications is January 16th, 2013.
Should you need any further information, please contact your National Agency.
