Are you ready for an adventure in 2016? Do you want to use your postgraduate studies to make a difference in the world? Are you interested in foreign policy?

If you answered yes to the above, and you’re an Australian citizen, The Australian National University has two unique opportunities for you: the 2016 National Parliamentary Fellowship Programs (NPFP) in Japan and India.

The NPFP will select up to four fellows for a foreign-policy focused research trip of up to three months to commence in mid-February 2016.

Two fellowship placements will be available in Tokyo, Japan and two fellowships in New Delhi, India.

“Successful fellows for the Japan program will assist a Japanese Diet member in developing policy advice and will have the opportunity to attend public policy hearings and briefings,” said Professor Peter Drysdale, head of the East Asian Bureau of Economic Research.

“The India-based fellows will have the same unique opportunities but within India’s parliament.”

The fellows are expected to attend functions in country, submit reports and articles about their policy-focused research, and complete the indicative assessment.

There are also scholarships available to assist with finances.

If you are interested in this unique opportunity and are ready to apply you can access the application forms here: Japan and India.

Find more information about the Japan fellowships here and the India.

Applications must be received by Friday 25 September.
