Fulbright Chairs

Fulbright-Schuman Chair in US-EU Relations

Every other year (in rotation with the European University Institute in Florence), the Fulbright Schuman Program funds the Chair in US-EU Relations at the College of Europe in Bruges. The Fulbright-Schuman Program, administered by the Commission for Educational Exchange between the United States and Belgium, is jointly financed by the U.S. State Department and the Directorate-General for Education and Culture of the European Commission.

This ten-month fellowship allows the grantee to pursue independent research in one semester. In the other semester, he/she will lead two courses in the framework of a Master's programme to a very select and international group of postgraduate students. This will help promote the students' understanding of relations between the US and the EU. Grantees may also be asked to provide thesis advising and participate in conferences.

Strong applicants include current professors of EU studies or related academic fields such as political science, international relations, law, economics, and public policy. Candidates are expected to hold a Ph.D. and have several years of teaching experience. French is desirable, but not required. Among the previous Chairholders are Professors Marco RIMANELLI, John McCORMICK, Alan HENRIKSON, Wayne THOMPSON, David L. CLEETON and Glenda ROSENTHAL. 

The 2015-2016 Fulbright Schuman Chair in US-EU Relations was Professor Amie Kreppel.
