The ‘EUCEPA Student Grant’ is intended to assist young people (such as students, apprentices and trainees) involved in the field of pulp & paper manufacture and related industries sectors to develop a greater understanding of the European pulp, paper & fibrous forest products industries and to assist in the early development of a network of International contacts.

The intended purpose of the EUCEPA grant is to support attendance annual meetings, conferences, fairs and trade shows organized or sponsored by member associations represented in EUCEPA for the purpose of further training in the field of pulp and paper production.

The EUCEPA grant will be a maximum of € 1000,00 which will be only be available to EU residents and not to institutions on behalf of individuals. To further support the individual, EUCEPA member associations will normally waive attendance fees for a visiting EUCEPA grant recipient from another EU member state.
To qualify for the grant, the applicant should be a member of one of the associations represented in EUCEPA or at least have a close connection to one of them.

To apply for the EUCEPA grant the following points must be considered, the individual should:

  • Contact the association of the country he or she comes from and the association will help to complete the application form.
  • If approved, whilst attending the event the application should obtain a “Proof of attendance” signed by an authority of the organizer of the event at the registration desk.  This should be forwarded to EUCEPA, again the country representative will be able to advise.
  • The successful applicant will receive a maximum of € 1000,00 per person in any calendar year, which will be paid (in arrears) upon production of appropriate proof of expenditure (receipts, boarding passes etc) following the event.
  • Successful applicants will be required to prepare a short report describing their visit and may be asked to work with the editor of a National associations publication to produce a short article describing the event.

In all cases, the awarding of a EUCEPA grant will be given at the discretion of the EUCEPA committee.
