What is the Jean Monnet Prize for European integration?

The Jean Monnet Prize for European Integration aims at honouring Jean Monnet’s memory and life achievements. It does so by rewarding talented individuals or groups having contributed to supporting or strengthening European Integration through a project they designed and implemented. The winning project receives a €1,500 grant.

The 2019 edition of the Jean Monnet Prize was organised under the patronage of the European Commission and of the European Parliament.

The full statute of the Jean Monnet Prize can be found here.

Who can apply?

All projects either implemented or under implementation promoting European integration can apply to the Jean Monnet Prize.

EuropeanConstitution.eu takes a broad view of European integration and believe it is as much about the people than about institutions. Many projects can therefore be considered to contribute to European integration or promote the European spirit.

You create or facilitate exchange programmes within the EU? Apply! You contribute to language learning or cultural encounters? Apply! Your project promotes the discovery of European history or shared knowledge about our heritage? Apply!

We believe that people’s imagination and creativity are endless; this is why we are opening wide the range of projects we can support. If your project relates to the EU, we want to hear about it!

When can I apply?

The Jean Monnet Prize is awarded annually on 9 November, on the day of Jean Monnet’s birth.

The application period for the 2019 edition ran from 9 August to 9 October 2019, 23:59 CET. During the application period, a link was provided to the online application procedure.
