DiscoverEU is back! Almost 50,000 young people were awarded a travel pass since the first application round in 2018.
Another round will take place from 7 – 28 November 2019 (deadline 11.00am (UK time)) with 20,000 travel passes are available for young people to travel across Europe.
You can find all the information on the European Youth Portal ► https://europa.eu/youth/discovereu_en
If you’d like to know how many passes were awarded in the previous rounds you can find some *info sheets here*, they’re very easy on the eye and provide detailed breakdowns including education or employment status of awardees, gender, country of residence and so on.
From what I can gather after a quick scan, the UK has a really high proportion of awardees based on number of applications, certainly compared to other countries, which is quite encouraging.
There also seems to be more applicants identified as female applying compared to those identified as male. Such confidence to travel is great to see!
If you’d like to see more young people from diverse backgrounds applying, why not share with them and support their application, you might just be supporting them to start an incredible journey!
