In July 2016, we started implementing the programme “Seeds for Integration” – Working towards building an inclusive secondary education environment. The programme is designed around the core idea that secondary school students have the will and capacity to find solutions for current social problems. Educational inclusion of migrant and refugee students is definitely one of them. However, in many cases the lack of resources prevents students from fully developing and implementing their ideas.

After a year and half, we can proudly say that with this programme, we funded more than 30 initiatives in 16 European countries, involving around 35.000 young people! 

Within this programme, OBESSU provided seed-funding to secondary school student unions on local, regional and national level and to non-formal groups made up of secondary school students in order to empower them to implement initiatives whose goal is the integration of pupils and students with migrant and refugee background.

Even though the structure of the programme has changed, the most important element stays the same – we are going to continue financing your creative ideas!

Today we are very glad to invite you to discover our brand new website and, more important, check out the new structure of Seeds for Integration programme:


  • Pillar 1 // We are providing small (up to 1000€) and large scale grants (up to 4000€) to grass-roots groups of school students, local, regional and national school student unions, so that they have resources to develop targeted local initiatives or projects with a regional or national level impact.

    Find all the information in the Call for Application – Pillar 1 and apply directly on this webpage.

    Deadline: on a rolling basis.


  • Pillar 2 // To strengthen visibility and outreach of the programme on national level and to ensure higher number of quality initiative proposals from grass-root and regional level, OBESSU Member, Candidate and Affiliate Organisations in 3 selected countries per year will be tasked to implement a so-called Inclusion Work Package (IWP) from an overall budget of maximum 7500€ per organisation.

    Find all the details in the Call for Application – Pillar 2 and apply through a specific Application Form on this webpage.

    Deadline: 26th March 2018
