Fulbright Award for the Executive MPA in Global Public Policy and Management (application deadline: 31st October)

In this award category, one award will be offered to a British citizen, who is a mid-career professional, to pursue a semester in the US as part of the jointly run Global EMPA with NYU Wagner. The Fulbright Award semester will be spent at New York University's Wagner Graduate School of Public Service in New York City and will take place during the autumn. Grantees will then return to the UK to complete a second semester at University College London. No additional funding is available for British citizens from the Fulbright Commission for this UK-based second semester.

In addition to applying for the award, students must apply for admission to the UCL/NYU Wagner course in the normal way. Please review the admissions criteria for the UCL/NYU Wagner course to make sure you are eligible before applying for this scholarship.
