The European Leadership Programme (ELP) opens one Cohort for each five months, per academic year. ELP is a Brussels-based Programme and requires the applicants to be based and work in Brussels to undertake the Fellowship. Applications for the Fall Cohort (October 2021 – February 2022) as well as early bird applications for the 2022 Spring Cohort (March 2022 – July 2022) are open until 15 September 2021.
After the confirmation of the enrolment, the ELP office will provide the applicants information about our accommodations, community living, bureaucratic requirements, and all the services offered to ELP fellows.
Applicants must be aware of the fact that at least 80% attendance to teaching activities is required. Secretary of ELP can allow further absence in special circumstances to be discussed on an individual basis. Failure to meet this requirement will lead to exclusion from the ELP Programme and services offered by the Programme.
Minority groups are encouraged to apply: this includes but is not limited to racial, ethnic, geographic, and gender minorities.
The ELP Programme takes place for a period of five months:
Below is a general timeline for the 5th Edition cohort of the ELP Fellowship Programme.
The ELP Selection Committee is composed by the JESC Director, the Secretary of the ELP and two further ELP contributors. The Selection Committee will examine the documents provided and interview the applicants. The selection will be held during late January and late August each calendar year. The Committee will rank the applicants through the evaluation of the documents submitted.
Applicants will be given a total score from 0 to 10 from each of the ELP Selection Committee members. All scores from the ELP Selection Committee members will be put together and applicants with the highest scores will be selected. The ELP Selection Committee will ensure equal opportunities in the selection process. Applicants will be informed of the outcome of the selection in order to be able to proceed to formalize their enrolment to the Programme.
The total cost of the European Leadership Programme (ELP) is 2,500€ per Fellow for the total period of the five-month Fellowship (please note that this tuition rate include housing). Thanks to the generosity of our coaches and donors, we are able to offer this Programme at a highly subsidized rate. We are committed to providing leadership-level formation as equitably as possible. We have designed this Programme for leaders who do not have access to robust professional development resources.
The total cost of the Programme concerns the living costs (ELP house) and the tuition fees. The total cost of the Fellowship is divided by the total duration of the Fellowship (5-months).
The monthly parcel that the Fellow pay is 500€:
Price of the ELP house: 100€
Price of the Fellowship: 400€
This gives a total of 2,500€ for the five-month Fellowship Programme.
The European Leadership Programme is committed to building the leaders of tomorrow. Invest in your future and receive formal training and critical on-the-job experience.
