Hubert H. Humphrey Fellowship Program

The Humphrey Fellowship Program is a Fulbright program that brings accomplished young and mid-career professionals from designated countries around the world to the United States for ten months of non-degree graduate study and related practical professional experiences. Fellowships are granted competitively to professionals with a commitment to public service in either the public or private sector.

Program Objective

During their year‐long stay at a host American university, Humphrey Fellows will take graduate level courses relevant to their professional interests. However, as the Humphrey Fellowship is not a degree program, participants spend a considerable portion of their time engaged in professional development activities including: consultations and affiliations with U.S. faculty and experts, field trips, workshops, research projects, and the development of practical strategies that could be applied in the Fellows’ home countries.

To participate in the Humphrey Fellowship Program, applicants must:
