Fulbright is currently promoting the Fulbright-Harkness New Zealand Fellowships and the next round of Fulbright Travel Awards.
This Fellowship is for an emerging New Zealand leader in any field of study or vocation to study or research in the United States. One Fulbright-Harkness Fellowship worth $15,000 is offered annually for a minimum of six weeks and maximum of six months of study and research in the US. Applications are invited from outstanding people in any field of study or vocation except health policy (there is an additional Fellowship for Health Care Policy and Practice). Applicants propose a short fellowship programme which best suits their professional and personal objectives at their choice of US university or institution. The Fellowship is not intended for a long programme of formal graduate study.
Applications close on 1 October 2010. Information about the application process is available on the Fulbright website.
These awards are for New Zealand academics, artists or professionals to visit the United States for 12 to 90 days in order to present their work to American audiences. Eight to twelve awards valued at up to NZ$5,000 are offered each year. Recently funded projects include visits to the US by composer Gareth Farr for a programme of lectures, workshops and performances, and conference presentations by academic experts in fields as diverse as the politics of ethnicity in China, amateur women cinematographers, childhood brain injuries and tax avoidance.
Applications close on 1 April, 1 July and 1 November each year. Further information about the Fulbright Travel Awards and application process may be found here on the Fulbright website.
