For the second year, the U.S. Department of State is pleased to offer the Fulbright Public Policy Fellowship, a new component of the Fulbright U.S. Student Program for public policy students and young professionals.
The Fulbright Public Policy Fellowship allows U.S. citizens to contribute to the strengthening of the public sector abroad by serving in professional placements within foreign government ministries or institutions while simultaneously carrying out an academic research/study project. The fellowship helps advance public policy research agendas, fosters mutual understanding and builds lasting ties between the United States and partner countries.
Selected Fulbright U.S. Students will work side-by-side with the citizens of other countries to tackle the toughest public policy problems of the day. This exchange is the vanguard of international public diplomacy, as it leverages the excellence of the Fulbright Program to achieve global development objectives.
Applications will be accepted from November 1, 2012 – February 1, 2013 at 5:00 p.m. Eastern Time.
