Commission for Educational Exchange between the United States, Belgium and Luxembourg
Preference is given to candidates with at least two years of related professional or academic experience beyond the Bachelor's degree. Candidates with permanent positions at the European Commission are ineligible to apply.
Awards are available for:
Research or University Study
- Graduate Study, Pre-Doctoral Research, Post-Doctoral Research
- University Lecturing
Awards are available to candidates from any of the Member States wishing to study, research, or lecture on a topic relevant to U.S.-EU relations, EU policy, or EU institutions. The results of eligible projects must be relevant to at least two EU member states; projects that do not meet this requirement should be submitted through the Fulbright Program in the applicant's country of citizenship. 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. Candidates may propose to stay at more than one institution during their grant, although they should provide a clear plan and justification for doing so.
Student grants are normally for a minimum period of one academic year. However, applications for pre-doctoral research for a minimum period of 6 months will also be considered.
Research and lecturing awards are for a minimum period of 3 months, maximum one academic year, with preference being given to projects of four months duration.
Professionals in International Education Administration
Grants are also available for professionals in international education administration from European universities for research within the field that would be mutually beneficial to both the institutions. Research projects should provide a comparative US-EU perspective on global issues within international higher education and/or share best practices within the field. Candidates may consider their contacts from conferences such as NAFSA and EAIE as potential host institutions.
