Focus on the ERA Scholarship programme

The primary idea of the Friends or ERA is to bring together legal professionals who support ERA in its objective of creating a fellowship of practitioners from across Europe promoting the good application of EU law, rooted in our shared value that everyone deserves an education that helps them to learn, grow, develop and thrive!

For many years now, the Friends of ERA have been supporting the ERA scholarship programme. In these Covid-19 times, online education has become for ERA the new normal.

This has resulted in ERA adapting its scholarship programme for distant learners too, leading to an increased demand for scholarships. With 40 granted scholarships in 2020 ERA could write the highest number of granted scholarships in its history.

The ERA scholarship programme could achieve this only through the collective and collaborative support of the Friends of ERA association.

With your help, we want to continue to expand the ERA Scholarship programme. Every donation will allow us to continue to offer high quality legal training to scholars as well as enhance and grow these offerings. By contributing to this cause, you will help us in our work through awarding more scholarships per year.

Local chapter activities

The Friends of ERA are active through local chapters. Regrettably due to Covid-19 no activities have taken place this year, but the Luxemburg chapter hopes to meet in November. Further details will be published here shortly.

Grab the opportunity and become a member of the Friends of ERA today or if you are already a Friend, feel free to pass on this information to people who might be interested to join us.
