Open calls for applications through the Mobility Fund FLAD – UAzores “Crossing the Atlantic” occur twice per year


The Luso-American Development Foundation (FLAD) and the University of the Azores (UAc) signed a protocol in February 2015 governing the mobility funds that FLAD provides to promote travel between the UAc and US universities and research institutions. Faculty, researchers and/or students (undergrad or grad) are eligible to participate.

Applicants from the UAc seeking mobility funding to the USA must apply through the University of the Azores.

Applicants from US institutions must apply through the FLAD website. The current call is open from September 17October 21, 2018. The application portal link is below:


There are two calls each year, and notifications will be sent out shortly after the call ends. The total annual amount available is €100,000 but no single request will receive more than €20,000. The evaluation results will be announced until 1 November 2018.
