The UK-German Connection’s Instant Impact programme provides grants of up to £1,500 for first-time visits between UK-German school and youth partnerships.
To be eligible for funding at least 75% of the time during the visit must be spent taking part in interactive and educational joint activity between young people from the UK and German partner institutions. The focus should be on collaboration, joint learning, discussion and reflection and there should be a commitment to the sustainability of the link with concrete plans for follow-up and development. Grants can support costs such as travel, accommodation and project resources and will be a part-contribution to the overall costs. Applicants must contribute at least 25% of the overall eligible activity costs through participants’ contributions and other sources of funding.
Applications can be submitted at any time but should be for activities that are at least six weeks ahead.
