Call for applications - Fulbright-Harkness Fellowship

[Update 4/4/13: Applications extended to May 1: Extended applications - Fulbright-Harkness Fellowship]

Call for applications - Fulbright-Harkness New Zealand Fellowship


Fulbright New Zealand and the New Zealand Harkness Fellowships Trust invite applications for the Fulbright-Harkness New Zealand Fellowship, which offers the opportunity for an emerging New Zealand leader in any field of study or vocation other than health care* to study or research in the US for a minimum of six weeks. Successful grantees will receive NZ$15,000 (plus a basic health benefit plan) towards a short fellowship programme of their own design at any US university or institution.

The Fulbright-Harkness New Zealand Fellowship aims to reinforce New Zealand-United States links by improving cross-fertilisation of ideas and experience between the two countries; to enable established or potential leaders and opinion formers in New Zealand to benefit from new ideas, practices and contacts in the US; and to increase Fellow’s abilities to bring about change and improvements in New Zealand.

Previous Fulbright-Harkness New Zealand Fellows include Sacha McMeeking from Te Rūnanga o Ngāi Tahu, who spent three months researching the role of indigenous leadership in corporate citizenship at Northwestern University’s prestigious Kellogg School of Management in Evanston, Illinois. The 2012 Fellow, Peter Griffin from the Science Media Centre, is currently in the US undertaking an intensive seven week research programme into public interest journalism. Peter has visited many high profile media organisations including the Center for Public Integrity in Washington, DC and the California HealthCare Foundation Center for Health Reporting in Oakland, California. He is blogging his observations of media trends in the US and New Zealand at www.futurenews.co.nz

Applications for the 2013 Fulbright-Harkness New Zealand Fellowship close at 5:00pm on Monday 1 April.


*Candidates in the field of health care should apply for the Harkness Fellowships in Health Care Policy and Practice provided by The Commonwealth Fund, applications for which close in September: http://www.fulbright.org.nz/awards/nzscholar/harknessfellowships/
