    •  The European Parliament publishes a call for youth grants once every two years, when civil society and youth organisations can submit communication projects for consideration. Themes and priorities are defined for each call, but they generally follow the communication priorities of the EP, such as: Conference on the future of Europe, European elections, etc.  
    The call for grants is published here - https://www.europarl.europa.eu/contracts-and-grants/en/grants/media-and-events  

    Frequency: Once every two years. Special calls may be published before the European elections.
    Sponsorship: Each youth organisation estimates the total budget of the project proposed.  A percentage of it will be funded by the European Parliament. The evaluation committee, made of Parliament staff, decides whether and how much money will be granted to the applicant.  
    Am I eligible: The highest-ranking projects will be selected. Geographical balance and the balance of submission   by national/local and by pan-European organisations will be taken into consideration.
