Call for Education 2023
UniCredit Foundation launches the "Call for Education 2023", to fund educational projects in the following countries: Austria, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Croatia, Czech Republic, Germany, Hungary, Italy, Serbia, Slovakia, and Slovenia.
Early school leaving and failure to acquire adequate skills for continuing university studies or entering the job market are widespread phenomena in most European countries. This is due to several factors, but largely depends on the socio-economic and cultural conditions of the families and of the territories where children are born and grow up.
The school represents an essential defense in the contrast of inequalities. Only a quality school can give equal learning opportunities to all students and, above all, to those who are most disadvantaged.
The Call intends to identify and support projects contrasting educational poverty in favour of lower and upper secondary school students (11-19 age group), carried out by non-profit organizations with particular focus on:
• tackling early school leaving;
• encouraging university attainment;
• acquisition of adequate skills to enter the job market.
The Call is open starting from June 26th 2023 and will close on September 8th 2023.
