Ian Axford (New Zealand) Fellowships in Public Policy give outstanding mid-career American professionals opportunities to research, travel, and gain practical experience in public policy in New Zealand, including firsthand knowledge of economic, social, and political reforms and management of the government sector.

Three to four fellowships per year are awarded for six months of research in New Zealand. Applicants must be U.S. citizens with at least five years of experience in their profession, and submit a formal application package.

Fellows will be based at a relevant host institution and carefully paired with a leading policy expert who will serve as their mentor. During their fellowship they will conduct research toward developing a policy paper for publication and public presentation in New Zealand before returning to the United States.

The Commonwealth Fund no longer administers the Ian Axford (New Zealand) Fellowships in Public Policy in the U.S. Please visit www.fulbright.org.nz for further information and application details.
