International Mobility Program on Atlantic Citizenship Trends (IMPACT)
IMPACT is an Atlantis 'excellence-in-mobility' grant, and focuses on an exchange of six EU and six US students annually, supported by faculty exchange and citizenship curriculum development. Participants have direct access to a global research network on citizenship studies.
It is a certificate-awarding mobility program focusing on the study of contemporary citizenship dilemmas in the EU and US, based on an EU-US consortia composed of four universities:
- Catholic University of Portugal (Universidade Católica Portuguesa),
- University of Colorado at Boulder,
- Trier University (Universität Trier),
- University of Massachusetts at Dartmouth.
The Fulbright-Schuman Program, administered by the Commission for Educational Exchange between the United States, Belgium and Luxembourg, is jointly financed by the U.S. State Department and the Directorate-General for Education and Culture of the European Commission.
The Fulbright-Schuman program focuses on research and/or post-graduate study on EU affairs or U.S.-EU relations at an accredited American university or independent research center. This program is open to citizens of all 27 EU member states and US citizens with two years of relevant experience.
