In 2013, the European Forum Alpbach will deal with "Experiences and Values". From August 12 to 31, 4.000 people from over 60 countries will once again come to the Tyrolian mountain village of Alpbach to discuss and explore current issues in the interdisciplinary setting of our conference. We are calling for applications for scholarships which will enable students and recent graduates to participate in this equally fascinating and venerable event.
The European Forum Alpbach 2013 will give its participants a choice of 16 one-week seminars which will analyse the manifestations of "Experiences and Values" in a great variety of academic fields. The Alpbach Symposia will approach the topic from a more practice-oriented vantage point. A large number of panel discussions will give you the opportunity to debate the most burning current issues in the fields of healthcare, technology, economics, international politics, law, spatial planning and financial markets. Summer Schools for European Law and Health Care, as well as a rich cultural programme, complete the agenda.
We put a special emphasis on the active participation of young students from all around the world. In Alpbach, we offer them the opportunity to enter into an informal discussion on the burning issues of our times with high-ranking experts and renowned personalities. An extensive social programme gives participants the chance to continue debates outside the conference and seminar rooms.
To enable young people to share in this experience, we offer scholarships for students and recent graduates with the kind support of our donors.
We cordially invite you to apply for a scholarship. Please forward this message to colleagues who might be interested.

In numerous European countries, Alpbach Initiative Groups and Clubs offer additional scholarship opportunities. These associations, which are run by Alpbach alumni, also organise events in the spirit of Alpbach. More details can be found at http://www.alpbach.org/asscociates
