Fulbright Initiatives

Fulbright Amazonia

Fulbright Amazonia supports governmental efforts to foster a healthy and resilient Amazon Basin. Over 18 months, outstanding professionals, practitioners, and researchers from Amazonian nations and the United States will address key research and policy questions to support the integrity of the Basin’s ecosystem and the wellbeing of its communities.

The Fulbright Arctic Initiative

The Fulbright Arctic Initiative brings together a network of scholars, professionals and applied researchers from the United States, Canada, the Kingdom of Denmark (including Greenland and the Faroe Islands), Finland, Iceland, Norway, Russia and Sweden for a series of three seminar meetings and a Fulbright exchange experience to address key research and policy questions related to creating a secure and sustainable Arctic.

The Fulbright Public Policy Fellowship

The Fulbright Public Policy Fellowship provides opportunities for U.S. early and mid-career professionals and practitioners to serve in placements in a foreign government ministry or institution around the world. Fulbright Public Policy Fellows build mutual understanding and contribute to strengthening the public sector while cultivating public policy experience in their area of expertise. The Fulbright Public Policy Fellowship also includes an independent research component that focuses on an issue related to the Fellow's in-country work.
