The Fulbright Public Policy Fellowship provides opportunities for U.S. early and mid-career professionals and practitioners to serve in placements in a foreign government ministry or institution around the world. Applicants should create projects that may include studies, practical experience in actual operations, visits to organizations in their professional field, workshops, public lectures or other appropriate professional experiences. Fulbright Public Policy Fellowships are available in three world regions: Africa (Botswana, Ghana, and Rwanda); Western Hemisphere (Peru and Colombia); and East Asia and the Pacific (Cambodia, Thailand, Vietnam, Timor-Leste, and Fiji). All candidates must be early to mid-career entrepreneurial and self-starter professionals with a graduate degree in a public-policy related field and have a minimum of three years of full-time work experience. Postdoctoral candidates and practitioners active in the academic, public, or private sectors with a record of experience and accomplishment in a public policy related area are encouraged to apply. Candidates with field-specific background applicable to public policy are preferred. PhD is not required. Doctoral degree holders are eligible as long as they have three years of public policy relevant experience as a professional/practitioner outside of the classroom. Candidates enrolled in a PhD are eligible as long as they have a MA degree AND three years of experience. Candidates who have gone directly from undergraduate to PhD and have completed the PhD, but do not have any work experience are not eligible. A letter of invitation should not be sought. Applicants should not contact potential host ministries to organize or advocate for a placement. Applicants are encouraged to register to a qualified language evaluator, such as a language instructor or a translator, to conduct the external assessment in the application.
