    Step Beyond Travel Grants

    Established in 2003, the STEP Beyond programme funds up-and-coming artists and cultural workers — with a priority on individuals up to 35 years and/or in the first 10 years of their career — to travel between the EU and countries bordering the EU.

    Grants of 250-750€ are made available to artists who want to travel abroad to meet potential project partners, to broaden their professional networks, or to present/produce creative work. Travel within the EU is not funded. An EU artist would have to travel to the Western Balkans, the MUBR (Moldovia, Ukraine, Belarus, Russian Federation), the South-Caucasus, Turkey, or selected Mediterranean territories.

    There is no deadline for the grant scheme, and applications can be made at any time.
