Fulbright grants are available for graduate study as well as pre-doctoral and post-doctoral research or university lecturing.
The Commission also administers the prestigious Fulbright-Schuman Program in European Affairs, which is co-financed by the Directorate-General for Education and Culture of the European Commission and the U.S. Department of State. This program allows for American professors and advanced graduate students to travel to EU Member States for study and research on topics relating to EU Affairs and/or EU-US Relations. Academics, professionals, and policy makers from the EU may pursue similar courses of study at American universities and colleges.
The Fulbright Program is the flagship scholarship program promoting international exchange between the United States and 155 countries worldwide. It fosters and promotes academic excellence and cross-cultural exchange.
