The European Union Center of Excellence at UT Austin is pleased to offer grants to two Texas high school teachers and three UT Austin undergraduate students to travel to Brussels in the summer of 2012 through the EUCE Brussels Program. The trip is funded through the support of the European Commission and organized by the Network of European Union Centers in the U.S.
All Texas high school teachers are eligible. However, special consideration will be given to those who teach a course or courses that deal with some aspect of the European Union and to those who are involved in the Euro Challenge.
All UT undergraduate students may apply and may be from any discipline. Special consideration will be given to those in a program or major that study some aspect of the European Union.
Funding includes round-trip airfare to/from Brussels, five nights of hotel and some meals.
The 2012 trip will be June 17-June 22 (arrive June 17, depart June 22). The agenda is currently being organized but should be similar to previous years (see agenda below).
Applications are due by 5:00 p.m. on April 20, 2012. No late applications will be accepted.
Along with the completed application, teachers must also provide a letter of support from their current principal. Students must provide a UT transcript (can be unofficial) and one letter of recommendation from a UT faculty member. More information is printed on the application forms.
