If you are you looking for a scholarship to fund your research stay in the United States, for the academic year 2022/2023, sign up for the webinar hosted by the Fulbright Commission in Brussels to learn more about the «Fulbright Schuman Program» which awards scholarships to European citizens for research in the U.S. with a focus on “EU affairs/policy“, or the “US-EU transatlantic agenda“.

NEXT WEBINAR DATES (Brussels time):
– September 22 at 05:00 PM
– October 15 at 10:00 AM
– November 9 at 01:00 PM


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. Grants can be awarded to candidates from any of the 27 EU member states for a period 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. (NOTE: Projects that do not meet this requirement should be submitted through the Fulbright Commission in Portugal).


Both student and scholar applicants may apply to the Grants for Innovation, a series of grants designed to support work that can create better transatlantic understanding of issues at the heart of the U.S.-EU relationship, particularly at the intersection of policy and technology. Applications that fit the description of the Innovation grants will automatically be considered during the current application cycle, thus no separate application is necessary.


If you intend to start a program in the academic year of 2022-2023, you will need to apply between September 15 and December 1, 2021. 

Prior to submitting their application, candidates must arrange their own placement at an accredited university, vocational training/professional institution, or independent research center in the United States. More information about eligibility, including answers to frequently-asked questions, can be found on the specific award pages (above).

Grants for students are normally for a period of nine months (i.e., an academic year). However, applications for pre-doctoral research for a period as short as four months will also be considered. Grants for scholars are for a minimum period of three months and a maximum of nine months.


  • Monthly stipend (USD equivalent of 2000€ for students and 3000€ for scholars) to be used to cover tuition, living costs, etc.;

  • Sickness and accident insurance for grantees (not dependents);
  • J-visa sponsorship for grantees and any accompanying dependents;
