The Bureau of Educational and Cultural Affairs (ECA) of the U.S. Department of State will inaugurate a new Fulbright award in academic year 2012-13.  The Fulbright Public Policy Fellowship will provide opportunities for U.S. citizens to build mutual understanding and contribute to the strengthening of the public sector abroad. 

The Fulbright Public Policy Fellowship will allow fellows to serve in professional placements in foreign government ministries or institutions and gain hands-on public sector experience in participating foreign countries while simultaneously carrying out an academic research/study project.   

Fulbright Public Policy Fellowships will be offered in the following countries:


Embassies, Fulbright Commissions (where applicable), and host country governments will coordinate appropriate professional placements for candidates in public policy areas including, but not limited to, public health, education, agriculture, justice, energy, environment, public finance, economic development, information technology, and communications.

The goal of these assignments 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 provide administrative support and oversight during the Fellow’s program.

Fulbright Public Policy Fellows will serve in a capacity similar to a “special assistant” for a senior level official. Successful applicants must have a strong service orientation, flexibility and resourcefulness, outstanding organizational skills, a wide range of competencies including strong writing, communication and IT skills, and an ability to work behind the scenes in a supportive role. Fellows may be responsible for activities such as policy and budget development and analysis; program monitoring and evaluation; drafting speeches, talking points, and correspondence; record keeping and note taking; and general project management. Fellows will have the opportunity to use their subject area expertise, language fluency, and other skills, such as IT proficiency, during the program to support the achievement of host institution goals. Responsibilities will be finalized after the placement is made. Participants will also be expected to carry out an academic component, such as an independent research project or related coursework. Fulbright Public Policy Fellows will spend approximately 32 hours per week in their professional assignment and 8 hours per week pursuing a related academic project.
