Award Details
Award 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 welcome to submit applications affiliated with any appropriate institutions, including European universities, governments, non-profit organizations and think tanks. Proposals should demonstrate a clear link to Europe and the European Union and be more suitable to the Fulbright Schuman Award than to binational programs. As such, preference is given to applicants who can make a strong case for the supranational nature of their research. Proposals will be considered both from candidates who plan to be based primarily in one member state as well as candidates who will divide their time between host institutions in two or more EU member states. Candidates planning to be based in only one member state should ensure that their proposed research still demonstrates a pan-European perspective. On the other hand, candidates planning to divide up their time in multiple member states should address the feasibility of these plans and should consider visa requirements for the countries involved. 

Candidates are responsible for arranging their own placement, including letters of invitation from any hosts.

Scholars selected for this award will be required to:
  • Advise and/or mentor students
  • Conduct a research project of the applicant’s choosing
Award Length
Three to nine months, with preference for projects of four to six month duration.
