Grant Period:

10 months


Candidate Profile:

Applicants who meet the eligibility requirements from all applicable public policy areas and academic backgrounds are encouraged to apply and will be eligible for selection and placement. For Kosovo, applicants in the following areas are especially encouraged to apply: National Security Studies, Strategic Communications, Economic Policy, Taxation, Education Policy, and Economic Development.

Candidates for the Fulbright Public Policy fellowship must:

  • Be U.S. Citizens
  • Have a Master’s with an area of focus that is applicable to public policy, or a JD degree OR be currently enrolled in a Ph.D. program prior to the grant period which will commence in Fall 2015. Candidates who hold a doctoral degree at the time of application are not eligible.
  • Have at least two years of full-time, professional work experience in policy-related fields.
  • Meet the language proficiency requirement

To learn more about the current Fulbright Public Policy Fellows, you may access their profiles here.


Language:

Proficiency in English meets the minimum language requirement.

Note: Public Policy Fellows will be required to effectively carry out a position in a foreign government ministry seamlessly.  Meeting the language requirements is critical for completing the daily requirements of the professional placement.  Applicants should also keep in mind that they will be living and need to function in the local economy.  They should be cognizant of this requirement especially in cases in which the official or working language(s) of government differ from the language used in daily life by the local population. Proficiency will be determined by the application and also will be verified at various times in the application process, including an interview to determine language level.


Affiliation:

Unlike the traditional Fulbright program, candidates should NOT affiliate with an in-country host institution during the application process. Candidates must NOT seek their own placements at this stage and must NOT submit any letters regarding placements/affiliations with their applications.  Candidates who do not follow these guidelines may be deemed ineligible.


Application Process:

Applications will be accepted from May 1, 2014 – October 14, 2014. Please make sure you carefully review the Fulbright Public Policy Fellowship overview and application FAQs before you apply.
