Are you interested in EU-U.S. relations or EU affairs? And do you want to go to the U.S. to study/research in the academic year 2022/2023? Apply for the Fulbright Schuman Grant.

The Fulbright Schuman program offers scholarships for study, research, and lecturing in the United States for EU citizens for a period of up to one academic year (9 months). Students and scholars of all academic fields can apply, but their area of research must have a strong EU component such as US-EU relations, EU policy/affairs, or the EU institutions. Additionally, the research must be relevant to at least two EU Member States.

The deadline for applications for the academic year 2022/2023 is December 1, 2021, 12 noon CET, through the Schuman Program’s portal for students here and scholars here. Here you can also learn more about the Schuman Program and read blogs from current and former Schuman alumni.

Please note that while Danish citizens qualify for these grants, they are administered by the Belgian Fulbright Commission and not by Fulbright Denmark. For more information about the Schuman grants, please refer to the Schuman Programs’ official website.
