EU-US Atlantic Program
The purpose of this Special Focus Competition: EU-US Atlantis Program is to provide grants or enter into cooperative agreements with eligible applicants to improve postsecondary education opportunities by developing and implementing undergraduate joint- or dual-degree programs. The EU-US Atlantis program is a revision of the European Union-United States Cooperation Program in Higher Education and Vocational Education and Training. Priority: Under the EU-US Atlantis Program competition, the Department is particularly interested in applications that address the following priority. For FY 2006 this priority is an invitational priority; the Department does not give an application that meets this invitational priority a competitive or absolute preference over other applications. This priority is designed to support the formation of educational consortia of American and European institutions to support cooperation in the coordination of curricula, the exchange of students, and the opening of educational opportunities between the United States and the European Union. This priority relates to the purpose of the program to develop and implement undergraduate joint- or dual-degree programs. This invitational priority is established in cooperation with the European Union. These awards support only the participation of US institutions and students in these consortia. European Union institutions participating in any consortium proposal responding to the invitational priority may apply, respectively, to the Directorate-General for Education and Culture (DG EAC), European Commission for funding under a separate but parallel EU competition.
