Grants for European citizens

The Fulbright Schuman Program awards scholarships to European citizens for research in the United States with a focus on EU affairs/policy, or the US-EU transatlantic agenda.

The Fulbright Schuman Program is administered by the Fulbright Commission in Belgium and is jointly financed by the U.S. Department of State and the Directorate-General for Education, Youth, Sport and Culture (DG.EAC) of the European Commission. Grants can be awarded to candidates from any of the 27 EU member states for a period of up to one academic year (9 months) and are open to all academic fields, however, the topic of research must have a strong EU component.

If you have specific questions about the process, please make sure to check out our FAQ section here.

Awards are available to conduct research, or lecture on a topic that is relevant to US-EU relations, EU affairs/policy, or EU institutions and shows relevancy to at least two EU member states. Projects that do not meet this requirement should be submitted through the local Fulbright Program in the applicant’s country of citizenship. Candidates must arrange their own placement at an accredited university or a non-profit research institution.

Note that candidates applying for the Fulbright Schuman Program should not apply for multiple Fulbright awards in the same competition year.
