The European Leadership Programme (ELP) opens one Cohort for each five months, per academic semester. ELP is a Brussels-based, non-accredited formation programme and requires the applicants to be based and work or study in Brussels to undertake the Fellowship. Applications for the 2022 Fall Cohort starting in October 2022 will open run from 30 May to 15 September 2022.
After the confirmation of the enrolment, the ELP office will provide the applicants information about our accommodations, community living, bureaucratic requirements, and all the services offered to ELP fellows.
Applicants must be aware of the fact that at least 80% attendance to teaching activities is required. Secretary of ELP can allow further absence in special circumstances to be discussed on an individual basis. Failure to meet this requirement will lead to exclusion from the ELP Programme and services offered by the Programme.
Minority groups are encouraged to apply: this includes but is not limited to racial, ethnic, geographic, and gender minorities.
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 held during late January and late August each calendar year. 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 tuition cost of the European Leadership Programme (ELP) is 13,500€ per Fellow for the full period of the five-month Fellowship (please note that this tuition rate includes housing). Thanks to the generosity of our coaches and donors, we are able to offer full tuition waivers for some, while for others only a decreased tuition. You are able to submit your tuition-related request (full or part waiver, justification, resources) in your application form. 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 contribute with their engagement and motivation.
The European Leadership Programme is committed to building the leaders of tomorrow. Invest in your future and receive formal training and critical on-the-job experience.
