The European Academy of Yuste Foundation is offering 120 grants to fund enrolment fees, accommodation, and subsistence for candidates attending various international summer courses organised by the Foundation in collaboration with the University of Extremadura. Candidates will be selected through a public grants call which will look at applicants’ academic transcripts.
Current university students, or those who have finished their degrees in the two years preceding the call (an official degree from an EU university) are eligible to receive the grants. The deadline for applications is Thursday 29 June, with registrations open for non-grant enrolments until the day before the course starts (or until places are filled). The courses are also open to the general public with free registration at the following web page: https://www.fundacionyuste.org/campus-yuste/inscripcion/

DOCTORAL SEMINAR. PEACE AND EUROPEAN VALUES AS A POTENTIAL MODEL FOR INTEGRATION AND PROGRESS IN A GLOBAL WORLD
With financial support from the Italian government and organised under the framework of the ‘Europe facing global challenges from cooperation to development’ project funded by AEXCID.
The aim of the Campus Yuste programme is to put on specialist courses and meetings aimed at encouraging debate and reflection in university students, researchers, and professionals, on the process of European construction and integration, as well as current issues in Europe and other themes related to the history and memory of Europe and the founding principles of the foundation. This is all examined from a multidisciplinary perspective and in the unique setting of the Royal Monastery of Yuste, which facilitates contact and exchange between students and speakers sharing their reflections with subject experts and first-rate academic, political, and social personalities, making this ultimately a space for reflection, thought, culture, and science.
The aim of the Campus Yuste grants is to raise awareness of the training programme, and get as many people involved as possible, including those from beyond our national borders, with the grants making it easier for university students, researchers, experts, and professionals interested in the study areas to participate and attend.
The Campus Yuste programme will continue in October with three seminars looking at: the migratory and financial crises which have hit Europe; the role of the media as a tool to safeguard liberties and human rights and its role as a speaker for the challenges facing institutions; and finally, the need to mainstream a gender-based approach at all levels of society to fight against violence and discrimination towards women under the framework of the ‘Europe facing global challenges from cooperation to development’ project, funded by AEXCID.
