Apply for The Hubert H. Humphrey Fellowship Program 2019 in USA

Application Deadline: October 1, 2019 

The Humphrey Program provides a year of professional enrichment in the United States for experienced professionals from designated countries undergoing development or political transition.

As a non-degree program, the Fellowship offers valuable opportunities for professional development through selected university courses, attending conferences, networking, and practical work experiences. During the year, Fellows pursue both their individual program goals and work closely with their Humphrey colleagues in workshops and seminars. Unlike a typical graduate school experience, the Program encourages Fellows to travel away from their host campus to learn more about American culture and to network with their American peers. If you are interested in broadening your perspectives and becoming a global leader, the Humphrey Fellowship is for you.
