Northern Ireland Public Sector

The Fulbright Northern Ireland Public Sector Award allows individuals working at the equivalent of NICS Grade 7 or above in the public sector of Northern Ireland to conduct research or assess best practice affiliated with any US institution.

This grant covers any appropriate three-to-five month project.

Candidates from non-departmental government organisations across the whole public sector, covering the three main areas of health, education and local government, as well as the range of public sector arms-length bodies sponsored by government departments are encouraged to apply.

Proposals should focus on research and assessing best practice rather than gaining a qualification.
