Below is a general timeline for the 8th Edition cohort of the ELP Fellowship Programme.
The ELP Selection Committee is composed by the JESC Director, the Secretary of the ELP and two further ELP contributors. The Selection Committee will examine the documents provided and interview the applicants. The selection will be conducted on a rolling basis. The Committee will rank the applicants through the evaluation of the documents submitted.
Applicants will be given a total score from 0 to 10 from each of the ELP Selection Committee members. All scores from the ELP Selection Committee members will be put together and applicants with the highest scores will be selected. The ELP Selection Committee will ensure equal opportunities in the selection process. Applicants will be informed of the outcome of the selection in order to be able to proceed to formalize their enrolment to the Programme.
The total value of the European Leadership Programme (ELP) is 13,500€ per Fellow for the full period of the five-month Fellowship. Thanks to the generosity of our donors, we are currently able to subsidise this fee. The amount payable remains the rent including utilities (living in the ELP community is a mandatory element of the programme) which is subject to yearly indexation and varies according to the size of the allocated room. Additionally, there is a one-time administrative fee of 250€ to be paid at the beginning.
For the 2023 Spring cohort the cost of the rent is between 650-750 €/month.

We are committed to offer the formation as equitably as possible. We have designed this Programme for future leaders who are ready to invest in their vocation timewise and as well as contribute with their engagement and motivation.
