As part of the Fulbright U.S. Student Program, the Fulbright Commission awards study and research grants for American students to Belgium and Luxembourg. Grants are typically for nine months, from mid-September through mid-June.
All candidates holding at least a bachelor’s degree are considered, but PhD candidates who present serious study projects and are capable of independent study are preferred. Applicants who are graduating seniors proposing independent research projects must obtain an invitation or letter of affiliation as a guest student at a Belgian university or university-level institution and attend master’s-level classes along with their Belgian counterparts. Proposed projects should be innovative, feasible, and based on the candidate’s overall academic education. Applications will be accepted in all fields.
