Applicants for the College from the UK who are short-listed are interviewed (usually in London every March) by the UK Selection Committee for the College of Europe. A representative of the Fund is among its members.

Scholarships are offered to those successful candidates who in the opinion of the Fund’s Trustees are most deserving. Therefore interested candidates should  be ready to justify their need for such financial support.

The address of the College of Europe’s Admissions Office is: 

College of Europe, Dijver 11, B-8000 Brugge, Belgium
Tel: +32 50 477 111

Online applications for the academic year 2022-2023 are currently open and will close on 19 January 2022. Please see the College of Europe website for details for the coming academic year.

“The language and negotiation skills I developed in Bruges, as well as the comprehensive understanding of how EU institutions and policy making works, set me up perfectly for a career working on climate change in the UK government, the private sector, and now the World Bank Group.”
Emily Murrell, Brunat Scholar (2011-12)

“Now more than ever we need as many British students as possible going to the College. Brexit has undoubtedly cast a dark shadow over UK-EU relations, and the only way in which we are going to repair the damage is by strengthening our commitment to vitally important institutions like the College.”
Stephen Kinnock MP, alumnus
