Fulbright New Zealand has an alumni network of over 3600 grantees who have contributed towards mutual understanding, professional collaborations and friendship between the US and NZ.
Our goal at Fulbright New Zealand is that grantees become a part of the programme, joining a whānau that you feel connected to not only during your grant, but for the rest of your life.
There are many ways grantees can stay involved as alumni of the Fulbright New Zealand programme.
Our alumni often tell us how much a Fulbright award has impacted their lives, and that they would like to find ways to contribute and give back to the programme. Below are a few ideas on how you could do so.
Most importantly, keep in touch with us! We love to know what you’re up to, wherever you are in the world. Emails and pictures are always warmly received.
U.S. Embassy New Zealand PAS Exchange Alumni Grant Program 2020
The U.S Embassy New Zealand is running a grant programme for U.S. State Department exchange alumni (including Fulbrighter’s) to apply for funding of up to $10,000 to expand on skills gained during their exchange experience to design and implement innovative solutions to global challenges facing their community.
Projects of interest include those that strengthen security and military cooperation and coordination, promote the mutual benefits of bilateral trade and investment, and deepen the relationships with Pacific communities, in New Zealand, Niue and the Cook Islands, based on our shared values and heritage. All programs must include an American cultural element, or connection with American expert/s, organization/s, or institution/s in a specific field that will promote increased understanding of U.S. policy and perspectives.
Applicants must reside in New Zealand and cannot be U.S citizens.
The deadline for applications is May 29, 2020.
