The Fulbright Public Policy Fellowship is a component of the Fulbright U.S. Student Program. It was inaugurated in 2012. The Fulbright Public Policy Fellowship allows fellows to serve in professional placements as "special assistants" in foreign government ministries or institutions and to gain hands-on public sector experience in participating foreign countries while simultaneously carrying out an academic research/study project.
