How to apply

This page focuses on guidance for organisations to apply for grants and calls for proposals under Erasmus+ and the European Solidarity Corps.

If you’re looking to apply by yourself to one of these programmes, please see “How to take part”.

Check your application against the Programme Guide

Please note that your application will be evaluated on the basis of the criteria described in the Programme Guide.

When writing your application, you should therefore familiarise yourself with the sections relevant to your application, including the sections on specific actions and other information for applicants.
