Fulbright Public Policy Program (deadline February 1, 2013)

This Fellowship provides opportunities for U.S. citizens to contribute to the strengthening of the public sector and relationship building efforts between the U.S. and countries abroad. Fulbright Public Policy Fellows will serve in professional placements in foreign government ministries or institutions and function in a “special assistant” role to a senior level official.  Fellows gain hands-on public sector experience in participating foreign countries while simultaneously carrying out a small academic research/study project.

-Candidates must have Master’s or JD by Fall 2013 OR be currently enrolled in a doctoral program. Candidates who hold a doctoral degree at the time of application are not eligible.
