Brussels Study Tour


Each summer the University of Pittsburgh's European Studies Center plans a five-day trip to Brussels, Belgium to learn about the European Union in collaboration with university partners from across the nation. ESC will provide funds to support summer study tours of Brussels for undergraduates, K-12 educators, and faculty teaching at community colleges or minority serving institutions.  For those students and educators with a strong interest in European Studies, this study tour will provide you with the opportunity to gain first-hand knowledge and experiences to further your understanding of Europe and the European Union.

Travel Dates: June 18-24, 2017
Application Deadline: March 3, 2017

Funding provided by the International and Foreign Language Education (IFLE) office of the U.S. Department of Education.

If you would like a more detailed look at the trip, please review the itinerary from 2016. ESC will provide updated details closer to the date of travel, but this document should give you a glimpse at how the tour is organized and locations you may visit during your stay in Brussels.
