Salzburg Global Seminar/Katrin Kerschbaumer


Salzburg Global Seminar is one of the world's leading international educational centers. The mission of Salzburg Global Seminar is to challenge current and future leaders to solve issues of global concern. Presently, the program framework has three cross-cutting clusters and addresses the underlying questions that hold keys to human progress: imagination, sustainability and justice.

Salzburg Global Seminar is dedicated to promoting the exchange of ideas in a multi-disciplinary and cross-cultural environment. Each year, some 1,000 professionals from more than 100 countries get together at the Seminar's magnificent facility at Schloss Leopoldskron, in Salzburg, Austria to discuss political, social, and cultural issues.

The Fulbright Foundation in Greece, in partnership with SGS, will offer a limited number of travel grants and/or partial participation fees to early to mid-career level Greek candidates to participate at the Salzburg Global Seminar.

"The Academy of Salzburg on media, migration and global change, provided by far one of the most powerful personal experiences on a scientific and interpersonal level. Clearly, this is an experience that alters the way in which one looks upon the world, bringing one into contact with people that have similar dreams, aspirations and principles. People who envision what a better world may look like, wishing to devote their lives to hard work in a bid to transform their visions into a reality for others."

During the 2022-2023 academic year, Fulbright Greece may support one participant for each of the following programs:


The Culture, Arts and Society series harnesses the transformative power of the arts to shape a better world. Through future-focused programs and projects, it raises the profile of culture and the arts in policy agendas, catalyzes exchange across disciplines and sectors, and sustains a unique creative community across continents.


The Salzburg Global American Studies Program fosters understanding and debate on America’s changing role in the world. With a distinguished track record since 1947, its annual symposia for professional leaders and scholars address topical questions affecting American culture, society and politics, analyze their global implications, and advance applied research.


The Education for Tomorrow’s World series informs new approaches to learning, skills and inclusion for radically different societies. Topical programs and regional workshops address emerging challenges and opportunities for education, assessment and the future of work, generating strategic recommendations and practical projects to recalibrate and reform current systems.


Launched in 2021, this dynamic year-long fellowship program provides participants with opportunities to build their capacity through virtual and in-person meetings, peer learning, mentorship, networking, and internship opportunities. Public Policy New Voices Europe is a Fellowship that aims to connect, support and empower a new generation of diverse leaders in public policy across Europe.
