Each scholarship within the frame of Jardin d'Europe is cofinanced by the European Union (Culture 2007-2013 programme), by Austrian funding bodies and by local funding from the home country of the nominee (but no private persons as sponsors). This last part is not yet secured in all countries. Therefore the applicants are encouraged (in cooperation with the Jardin d'Europe office) to look for possible funding institutions in their home countries. It is a good idea to check the former danceWEBers from your home country and where they received funding from.

Depending on the available sources of financing, 1 or 2 participants per country are selected from countries of the European Union. In addition, a total of 15-20 participants from Central and Eastern European countries as well as a small number from other regions of the world (Africa, South-East Asia, North/South America, Australia) are selected each year.
