Fulbright Graduate Degree Grants
In 2009, the Australian Government established an annual scholarship program to recognize the many contributions by Mrs. Anne Wexler in fostering Australian-American relations. The aim of the Fulbright Anne Wexler Scholarship in Public Policy is to grow Australian-American educational linkages by building a network of public policy experts and to encourage ongoing policy exchange between both countries. The award will enable U.S. students with strong academic credentials and leadership potential to undertake a master's degree in Australia in a key area of public policy such as health, sustainability, energy, climate change, regional security, education, political science, history, or government relations. Visit the U.S. Applicant page for more information.
