The STEP Beyond Travel Grants programme was established on the basis of the Erasmus and APEXchanges programmes. It is geared toward study and exchange of opinions, skills and inspiration between novice artists and culture professionals.
The grant amount ranges from USD 250 to 700 (depending on the country) to cover travel expenses. The grant is received after the qualifying travel has taken place. Priority is given to people under 35 years old and/or those who have worked in the cultural sphere for less than 10 years.
After having applied for a STEP Beyond Travel Grant, you automatically become a member of the laboratory where the online community enables you to meet people from the European cultural field and beyond.
