The Marc de Montalembert Foundation aims to promote cultural understanding among the young generations and encourage intercultural dialogue in the Mediterranean world. Every year, the Foundation gives out a grant to young people from the Mediterranean region to implement intercultural projects.
Can you apply?
Yes, if you are under 30 years old, from a Mediterranean country and want to implement an original intercultural project that is in line with your vocational choices. To apply, you should propose a study project in the cultural field of your choice.
How to apply?
The call for applications opens every year on the 1st of October and you should apply by the 31st of December. Keep in mind that application forms must be requested by the 15th of December. If you are awarded the grant, you will be invited to receive it in Rhodes on the 25th of April.
You will have one year to report on the knowledge and experience you acquired during the entirety of your project. This can be written or expressed in any publishable and distributable form. You can even stay up to six months in the Foundation’s base in Rhodes to prepare this work.
From 1994 to 2012 twenty-one projects from different fields have been awarded the grant, related to writing, architecture, singing, photography, music, ethnography and art history.
In 2010, the Foundation began awarding the Marc de Montalembert Prize, in association with the Institut National d’Histoire de l’Art in Paris. Every year, this prize is awarded to a young Mediterranean scholar for research on the history of art in the region.
