By applying for the STEP Beyond Travel Grant, you are automatically joining ECF Labs: our online community of individuals in the field of arts and culture from Europe and beyond. Being part of this community enables you to share information about your projects and activities by posting blogs and photographs.
As a first step, you will be asked to create a personal account on ECF Labs. You will only be able to create and submit your application after registering for ECF Labs.
Upon the submission of your application, an online project profile will be created automatically and this will be made publicly available on the Grants Lab at www.ecflabs.org/grants.
This project profile includes the following information:
Your profile picture
Your organisation (if applicable)
Travel itinerary (from–to)
Your host in the destination country
Title, short summary and expected outcomes of your project
The members of your travel group (if applicable).
Your project profile will remain publicly available, allowing you to post blog updates. You are able to delete your profile at any time.
Applicants who are successful will also be able to submit their reports and invoices through their project profile on the Grants Lab.
When applying for a STEP Beyond Travel grant for travelling to or from Belarus, please do not apply online but send us an email at firstname.lastname@example.org. We will send you the application form electronically.
This multi-step application form allows you to tell us everything we need to know about your travel. The application can be updated and changed at any time before submission: please use your ECF Labs account to log in and access your application. Please click Save Draft after each section to ensure that no information is lost. A submit button at the end of the form will only appear when you have filled in all the mandatory fields marked with an asterisk (*).
Please log in here to access your profile and create or continue with your application.

We have provided some examples in grey, but please adjust the budget to your particular initiative. We would like to understand how you planned your project.
