We encourage you to apply for the 2023-2024 Fulbright Schuman Program

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 and Culture of the European Commission.


Fulbright Schuman 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). Awards are open to all academic fields, but the research must be relevant to US-EU relations, EU affairs/policy, or EU institutions and must show relevancy to at least two EU member states. Candidates must arrange their own placement at an accredited university or a non-profit research institution in the USA. An overview of all grants can be found on our website at www.fulbrightschuman.eu.

In partnership with the U.S. Mission to NATO, we are excited to announce the Fulbright-NATO Security Studies Award for the 2023-24 academic year.
