Brussels-Lux Study Tour

Grand Place Brussels
2023 Brussels-Lux Study Tour dates: June 18-24, 2023

The deadline to apply for the 2023 Brussels-Lux Study Tour has passed. Please check back later for information on the 2024 study tour.

Each summer the University of Pittsburgh's European Studies Center plans a week-long study tour to Brussels, Belgium to give educators the opportunity to gain first-hand knowledge and experiences to further their understanding of Europe and the European Union. This year, the University of Illinois European Union Center is able to sponsor one educator to attend the tour. We select the participant through a competitive application process and cover their economy-class transatlantic airfare, six nights double (shared) occupancy in a four-star hotel located in the EU Quarter (including daily breakfast), and roundtrip train fare between Brussels and Luxembourg, up to $2,000. The selected participant will be expected to attend all activities organized as a part of the tour, as well as participate in three videoconferences (one before and two after the study tour).

Eligibility: To be considered, applicants must be a K-12 educator or faculty at a community college or minority-serving institution in the United States.
