This is your main page.

5. Search for Hosts - Matching Phase

If your profile is approved, you'll be able to search for a Host Organization.

In the Search Hosts Page you can filter the hosts and see their profiles by clicking on their legal names.

In the Host Page you will find information and details of the Host Organization.

Once you have identified one or more Host Organizations that interest you, send an email to its contact person to propose yourself for a Skype interview.

Write in the title of your email "EU4EU internship application - (Your Name and Surname)". Write in the text of your email that you would like to apply for a traineeship with a scholarship within the EU4EU project, explain briefly the reasons for your interest in that organization, invite the organization to view your profile on the Portal EU4EU and propose yourself for an interview via Skype.

You should not contact more than 10 Host Organizations at the same time. You may send a new request after 5 days have passed without receiving a response.

You could also receive an email directly by some Host Organizations that found your profile in the Portal. In this case, reply as soon as possible (maximum 5 days) non only if you are interested in the offer, but also if you are not interested, in order to give other students the opportunity to receive that internship proposal.

6. Letters of Availability

If the outcome of your interview via Skype is positive, the Host Organization will send you the "Letter of Availability" via email (You will need to communicate with the Host Organization to help fill out the availability letter and agree on the contents). If you want to accept the traineeship offered you must print the Letter, sign it and upload it again in your personal page in EU4EU Portal. To do this go to your page and you'll find the new button "Letters of Availability". Click on this button.

Here you'll find the name of the Host Organization that sent you the Letter of Availability. Sign the Letter and upload it in the "file upload" that you find on its row.

Once uploaded you'll receive a confirmation message by the page.

You will have to upload the Letter of Availability from a Host Organization on your account but remember: in the event of a balance between two or more candidate trainees, the ranking priority is established based on the order of arrival of the applications. So, the sooner you upload the Letter of Availability, the better chance you have of being awarded the scholarship.

You can only upload one Letter of Availability; if more than one Host Organization sent you the Letter of Availability, without delay inform the Host Organization you don't pick, in order to leave that offer to other students.

When you upload the Letter of Availability to your account, your application will be completed. Your profile will no longer be visible to Host Organizations and you will no longer be able to view the profiles of Host Organizations.
