Program Highlights

High School Outreach

EducationUSA visits several local and international highs schools in Belgium throughout the year. Every October we host a college fair for approximately 100 US universities, but throughout the year we can also arrange independent panels at international high schools or receptions at US Embassy Brussels.

University Outreach

Outreach to universities includes over 50 presentations and university fairs in Brussels, Ghent, Leuven, Louvain-la-Neuve, Liege, Namur, Mons, and more.

Fulbright Schuman Outreach

EducationUSA offers programming for many American EU studies programs passing through Belgium in coordination with the US Mission to the EU. We recruit US and EU citizens for the Fulbright Schuman program, which sponsors projects related to EU policy or US-EU affairs. The majority of European candidates for the award come from Spain, Italy, Greece, and Belgium.
