Fulbright-Anne Wexler Master's Scholarship in Public Policy

Call for Applications to U.S. Citizens


The aim of the Fulbright-Anne Wexler Scholarship is to grow Australian-American educational linkages by building the network of public policy experts and to encourage ongoing policy exchange between both countries.

The 2015 Scholarship will enable a U.S. postgraduate student with strong academic credentials and leadership potential to undertake a two year Master's degree in Australia in an area that supports Mrs Wexler's binational interests in the field of public policy. These may include key areas such as health, sustainability, energy, climate change, regional security, education, political science, history or governmental relations.

One Scholarship is available each year for an American (US) citizen to enroll in and complete a two year Australian Master's degree in Public Policy.

Further information is available from The Australian-American Fulbright Commission and from the Institute of International Education (IIE) website.
