Fulbright US Student Program: Fulbright Clinton Fellowships

(From the US Student Program announcements):
Fulbright U.S. Student Program

Fulbright-Clinton Fellowships

The Bureau of Educational and Cultural Affairs (ECA) of the U.S. Department of State inaugurated the J. William Fulbright – Hillary Rodham Clinton Fellowship (formerly the Fulbright Public Policy Fellowship) in academic year 2012-13. The Fulbright-Clinton Fellowship provides opportunities for U.S. citizens to build mutual understanding and contribute to the strengthening of the public sector abroad.

Fulbright-Clinton Fellows serve in professional placements in foreign government ministries or institutions. Fellows gain hands-on public sector experience in participating foreign countries while simultaneously carrying out an academic study/research project.

Fulbright-Clinton Fellows will 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. Participating countries will be announced on November 1, 2013.

We have recently posted two upcoming webinars in anticipation of the 2014-15 competition open on November 1, 2013 that may interest your students.
