The Ian Axford (New Zealand) Fellowships in Public Policy Board call for applications for 2017 Fellowships.
Ian Axford (New Zealand) Fellowships in Public Policy are for outstanding mid-career American professionals to research and gain firsthand experience of public policy in New Zealand. Two to four Fellowships valued at up to NZ$58,500 are granted each year, towards seven months of research.
Successful candidates will be based at a New Zealand government host organisation in Wellington. Fulbright New Zealand will work with the host organisation and the Fellow to finalise a suitable host agency mentor. The Fellow should utilise their US contacts and the assistance of their host organisation to source appropriate US and New Zealand academic mentors.
At the conclusion of their fellowships, before returning to the United States, Fellows will be required to submit a policy report for publication by the Fellowships Office and to deliver a seminar on their findings to an invited audience and interested members of the public. The reports of previous Fellows are available here.
Applications for these awards close at 5:00pm on 1 April 2016.
