Thank you for your interest in the European Studies Center’s Brussels Study Tour!
Each summer the University of Pittsburgh’s European Studies Center (ESC) plans a five-day trip to Brussels, Belgium to learn about the European Union in collaboration with university partners from across the nation. Tour participants gain first-hand knowledge about several issues the EU currently faces—including Brexit, migration and diversity, and security—through a series of site visits to EU institutions, think tanks, NGOs, and the European School of Brussels.
Who can apply for a travel grant?
Undergraduates of the University of Pittsburgh, K-12 teachers, and community college or minority-serving institution faculty may apply. The ESC runs both a regional and national search to award travel grants for both K-12 teachers and post-secondary faculty. Educators from the Western Pennsylvania region or from across the nation can apply.
What does a travel grant cover?
Grants will provide up to 1,000€ toward the cost of airfare to Brussels, six (6) nights in our contracted four-star hotel located convienently in Brussels' European Quarter, and breakfasts for six (6) days. In addition, the ESC at Pitt and CES at UNC will host one group dinner during the tour. Participants will be responsable for all additional meals, any additional costs for transportation, and all incidental expenses. There will also be a non-refundable fee of $275 USD charged to all participants to cover adminsitrative costs.
Application deadline is March 2, 2018 5:00p.m. EST
