How attending

More information about the different scholarships can be found under the “Scholarship” tab. 

How to apply

Applications for European Space Camp 2024 are closed. Applications for ESC 2025 open on January 1st 2025

To apply, you have to create a profile at this site and navigate to the application tab in the profile section. There you will find the information on what we are looking for in your application. The application process consists of two rounds. For the first one you will have to upload a video, your CV and proof of English proficiency. For any further information please navigate to the application tab in the profile section as well. You can find more information about these documents and some other details about the process in the FAQ under the ‘Contact&FAQ’ tab.

You can save your progress and continue your application at a later time. It is therefore highly recommended to have tested the application system before the last day. Please contact if you have any problems.

Please note that European Space Camp is aimed at youth with an academic background in high school level physics and math at most. If you are already enrolled in university studying Engineering or Physics, then this course is not for you. In particular, ESC is not looking for students already studying Aerospace Engineering. There are other opportunities for university students with an Engineering background, such as Fly A Rocket (ESA). However, university students enrolled in a course unrelated to Engineering or Physics may still apply as long as the other requirements for application are met.
