Award Details
Grant Activity

Conduct policy-oriented research that addresses topics of common importance for the U.S.-EU relationship and/or EU affairs and that is tenable in any one or two EU Member States. Candidates are responsible for arranging their own placement, including letters of invitation from any hosts.

In addition to being a prestigious academic exchange program, the Fulbright Program is designed to expand and strengthen relationships between the people of the United States and citizens of other nations and to promote international understanding and cooperation. To support this mission, Fulbright Scholars will be asked to give public talks, mentor students, and otherwise engage with the host community, in addition to their primary research or teaching activities‎.
Grant Length
Three to nine months, with preference for projects of four to six months duration.
Grant Dates

Grants must occur between September 2018 and June 2019.

Locations

Any appropriate institutions, including European universities, governments, non-profit organizations and think tanks. Proposals should be tenable in any one to two EU Member States. Preference is given to candidates who will divide their time between host institutions in at least two EU member states so that their projects reflect a pan-European perspective. However, proposals that include stays at one institution that has significant ties to the EU or EU studies will also be considered. Candidates are responsible for ensuring they are able to secure the appropriate visa(s) to move between their selected EU countries. A three month or longer stay in any one EU member state will make the candidate eligible for a long-stay visa that enables him/her to travel within the Schengen area for an additional 90 days within a 180-day period. If the project proposal includes three month or longer stays in two locations, it is likely that two country-specific visas will be needed.
