How to Apply - Please read all information on the Foundation's website

Full project and budget information to be submitted online (link below) before the deadline (April 3rd 2023)


You must identify a Alstom member of staff to promote your application - see details below:


All projects must be submitted by an NGO together with an Alstom employee acting in the role of the Project Promoter. 


The Promoter will work with the NGO to prepare the project file and will validate the file prior to its submission. If the project is selected, the Promoter will assist the Secretariat in monitoring its implementation.


Each Alstom employee is allowed to support one project submission only per year.


If you have a good project to submit but don't know anyone from Alstom, the Secretariat of the Alstom Foundation may be able to help you identify someone willing to Play the promoter role in support of your project. But finding such a Promoter takes time. Accordingly, the deadline for receipt by the Secretariat of requests to find an Alstom Promoter is fixed at 3 April 2023. No such requests will be considered after this date.


Furthermore, the Secretariat does not guarantee to find a Promoter for each submission. Promoters are volunteers who will only step forward if a project concept interests them.
