What is Fulbright?
A Fulbright award is more than a Scholarship – it is, in the words of Senator Fulbright, a means of fostering “leadership, learning, and empathy between cultures… It is a modest program with an immodest aim – the achievement in international affairs of a regime more civilised, rational and humane than the empty system of power of the past.” Since its establishment, the Fulbright Program has grown to become the largest educational exchange program in the world, operating in over 160 countries.
The Australian-American Fulbright Commission offers Fulbright Scholarships to Australian citizens across all career stages. Awardees take part in a bi-lateral academic and cultural exchange, pursuing research or study at a U.S. institution, experiencing life in the United States of America, and bringing back their knowledge and experience to share with their communities in Australia. Since its inception in Australia in 1949, the Fulbright Commission has awarded over 5,000 scholarships, creating a vibrant, dynamic, and interconnected network of Alumni.
Why apply for the Fulbright Professional Scholarship in Non-Profit Leadership?
This scholarship provides an exceptional opportunity for personal / professional development and broader impact through research, experiential learning or management training at an approved U.S. institution or charitable organisation. It offers the unique opportunity to exchange ideas and information with industry leaders in Australia and the U.S., and join the prestigious alumni of Fulbright Scholars worldwide.
Successful applicants will undertake research and/or professional development which addresses contemporary issues of relevance, innovation, knowledge development, impact on policy and practice in the NFP sector across any discipline or service area. For example, in 2010, the Productivity Commission delivered a seminal report outlining the “Contribution of the Not-for-Profit Sector”. The report made a series of recommendations which can be viewed at http://www.pc.gov.au/projects/study/not-for-profit/report .
The 2019 Fulbright Professional Scholarship in Non-Profit Leadership is generously sponsored by Perpetual Limited.

“The opportunity to take six months out from a busy job is rare enough. The opportunity to use that six months to develop a whole new area of expertise; to visit hundreds of colleagues overseas; to engage with challenging ideas and stimulating approaches; to reflect on organisational and political culture; and to consider new ways of working towards shared goals of social justice, self-determination and community development, is incomparable. The Fulbright Professional Scholarship in Non-profit Leadership gave me that opportunity.”
~ 2013 (inaugural) recipient – Dr Tessa Boyd-Caine, CEO, National Centre for Health Justice Partnerships. Click here to read her final report.
“As a proud Fulbrighter I am delighted to support a scholarship that recognises the growing importance of the community sector in creating social impact. Australia needs to invest in the capacity of non-profit leadership and … I know from experience that those who win the scholarship will be transformed by their learning and, as alumni, will contribute to the creation of a more caring and civic-minded Australia.”
~ Professor Peter Shergold AC, Chancellor, University of Western Sydney
