What is a KILROY Foundation Grant?
KILROY Foundation awards grants to young individuals pursuing:
• Studies abroad
• Internship abroad
• Volunteer work abroad
The Foundation will award 5 "Spring" grants in the first half of each year and 5 "Fall" grants in the second half of each year – each at €1500, to individuals who seek to develop themselves by going off the beaten track, contributing to local community development and international experiences
Where does the money come from?
KILROY Foundation Grants are fully financed by funds donated by KILROY International
Why a KILROY Foundation Grant?
The intent of the Foundation is to help develop individuals and communities around the world through travel and education. We want young people to have the opportunity to discover and experience global diversity, minimize any form of prejudice and maximize interest and involvement in global society. This we do through our KILROY Foundation Grant scheme.
How do you apply for a KILROY Foundation Grant?
The grant process consists of only four steps:
- Step 1: Qualification Form – you are asked to spend 10 to 15 minutes answering some simple questions about you and your planned experience abroad. Based on your answers the KILROY Foundation will identify the most qualified candidates based on how impactful the grant will be.
Please note: when the Spring or Fall application process begins, a yellow link will appear at the bottom of this page
>> Spring Grants 2017, now online! - applications close July 3rd, 2017 <<

**Your travel abroad does not have to exclusively take place during the grant season**
- Step 2: Application – the selected candidates will receive an email with link to the Application Form where we ask you to submit a short motivation and some additional information.
Please Note: ALL applicants from Step-1 not progressing to Step-2 will also be informed of their results!
- Step 3: Application Evaluations – the KILROY Foundation Grant Committee will review and evaluate all Step-2 applications. Additional information will be requested if needed.
