Fulbright Schuman awards scholarships to European citizens to study, conduct research and/or lecturing in the United States on the development of the EU, EU policy/affairs, or the U.S.-EU transatlantic agenda for a period between three months and one academic year.
The Fulbright Schuman Program is jointly financed by the U.S. State Department and the Directorate-General for Education and Culture of the European Commission. The annual competition for the 2022-2023 Fulbright Schuman awards is open till December 1, 2021, as the deadline for candidates to submit an online application.
What type of grants does Fulbright Schuman offer?
Grants can be awarded to students, scholars, and professionals with citizenship in 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. 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. An overview of all grants can be found on our website at www.fulbrightschuman.eu.
