Info Session: Fulbright-University of Missouri Journalism Award

Learn more about this unique partner award from the School of Journalism in Columbia, Missouri.

Are you a journalist or an aspiring journalist who wants to broaden their knowledge on certain topics in journalism and is excited to establish or expand their contacts in the United States? In cooperation with the University of Missouri, each year the Fulbright Commission in Brussels selects a mid-career professional journalist from Belgium or Luxembourg to participate in the University of Missouri Journalism Award. As part of this award, each selected grantee will spend a semester (between mid-August and mid-December) in the United States to audit classes at the Missouri Journalism School and to participate in guest lectures and roundtable discussions with students and scholars.
