The Fulbright Program

The Fulbright Program is the largest U.S. international exchange program, offering opportunities for students, scholars, and professionals to undertake international graduate study, advanced research, and teach at the elementary, secondary, and university levels worldwide. Several Fulbright grants are available each year for study or research at any Dutch or Flemish university. In addition, the Fulbright Program offers awards such as the Fulbright English Teaching Assistant that places one American student with proficiency in Dutch in a Flemish university for nine months to teach English conversation and American culture. This is the world’s only Fulbright ETA position in a Dutch-language environment. Other awards are specifically linked to Dutch or Flemish universities. Participating universities are: the University of Antwerp, the University of Ghent, the University of Leuven, Radboud University, VU Amsterdam University, Erasmus University Rotterdam, TU Delft and Maastricht University. Candidates in all fields are welcome to apply to these positions. More information about Belgium, about the Netherlands, and application forms can be found on the Fulbright website.
