Scholarship Details:

A traineeship at the European Commission is much more than just a professional experience. Each batch of trainees organises a huge range of non-formal learning, and social activities, from football to wine-tasting and much in between – in true bureaucratic fashion, each with its own organising committee. There are usually 40-50 such activities to choose from.
