We are pleased to offer a limited number of scholarships for students and young professionals interested in joining this year’s Summer Academy with an entry fee waiver.

This annual event gathers a select group of leading thinkers, practitioners, and academics from all over the world who are working on new forms and politics of influence, mobilisation and lobbying. It’s the perfect opportunity to gain a deeper understanding of new forms of participatory politics in a geopolitically-shuttered world.

The 2023 edition will take place on July 17-20 in Bilbao, Spain, and candidates can apply for the scholarship now by filling out this short form.

Here’s some testimonials from the experience gained from previous scholarships’ holders:

Previous recipients of the scholarship have praised the experience:

“Throughout the Summer Academy, I was able to discuss and debate some of the most critical political issues of today. As a student, it exposed me to new perspectives beyond the classroom and a valuable network for future collaboration.”
– Michelle Nee

“The scintillating discussions around lobbying for good and the experiences from across Europe and Latin America gave me valuable takeaways that will be very instrumental in the work we do at the International Student Environmental Coalition.”
– Harrison Ashangwa

Be sure to check out Lorenzo Canu’s blog post on last year’s Summer Academy for more on what can be expected.

We would be grateful if you could circulate this opportunity with your network, as we hope to involve as many young voices as possible to round out this unique event.

Please do not hesitate to contact us should you have any other questions.
