Fulbright-Clinton Fellowship – Deadline Jan 10, 2014

Posted by & filed under Deadlines, Fellows, Professionalization.

Read on to find out more about the Fulbright-Clinton Fellowship, formerly known as the Fulbright Public Policy Fellowship.

The Fulbright-Clinton Fellowship provides opportunities for U.S. citizens to serve in professional placements in a foreign government ministry or institution in partner governments. Fulbright-Clinton Fellows build mutual understanding and contribute to strengthening the public sector while gaining hands-on public sector experience. The Fulbright-Clinton Fellowship also includes an independent academic study/research component.

Fulbright-Clinton Fellows function in a “special assistant” role for a senior level official. The goal of the professional placements is to build the Fellows’ knowledge and skills, provide support to partner country institutions, and promote long-term ties between the U.S. and the partner country. The U.S. Embassy, with the Fulbright Commission (where applicable), will identify host ministries and provide administrative support and oversight during the Fellow’s program.

Available Countries: African Union, Bangladesh, Burma, Guatemala, Haiti, Ivory Coast, Kazakhstan, Kosovo, Malawi, Nepal, Samoa, and Timor-Leste.

The program is currently accepting applications from candidates who meet the following eligibility requirements:

  • Currently a U.S. citizen
  • Have a masters degree  (MA, JD, MBA, MPA, MPH, MSW, MSc, or other) with an area of focus that is applicable to public policy prior to September 1, 2014 or will be enrolled in a doctoral program prior to September 2014.
  • Have at least 2 years of full-time professional work experience in policy related fields. 

The Fulbright-Clinton fellowship deadline is January 10, 2014. Students are not required to meet with USC Fulbright advisors, but the Office of Academic and International Fellowships (information below) can assist if students have any questions. Applications must be submitted directly to Fulbright. Additional information, instructions, and tips are available at http://us.fulbrightonline.org/fulbright-clinton-fellowships
