Unfortunately no! If your country is not on the list, you can encourage organisations to become a member of the JMI network and run the Ethno program...we have been having conversations in both South Africa and in the Netherlands, but do not (yet) have a member organisation there...sorry!! You can attend the Ethnos in Belgium, Germany and Denmark, those should be the closest to you!

Hi, Is there a category in which I could apply for the mobility fund while my country is not on the list? I am a citizen of South Africa and reside in the Netherlands.

Hi Georgia! The Mobility form will accept applications until spring/early summer 2023, but we encourage anyone interested in travelling in 2023 to apply before 31 December 2022 :) Looking forward to receiving your application! The Ethno World team
