Hubert H. Humphrey fellowship program seeks entries

THE Hubert H. Humphrey is inviting applications to its Fellowship Program which provides a year of non-degree graduate-level study, leadership development, and professional collaboration with United States counterparts.

Primary funding for the Humphrey Program is provided by the US Congress through the Bureau of Educational and Cultural Affairs of the US Department of State.

Participants from the following regions are eligible: Sub-Saharan Africa, Europe, Middle East and North Africa, East Asia and Pacific, South and Central Asia, and the Western Hemisphere. For a full list of participating countries, click here.

During the program, fellows pursue both their individual program goals and work closely with their Humphrey colleagues in workshops and seminars. Unlike a typical American 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.

Applicants are required to have at least an undergraduate degree, a minimum of five years of full-time, professional experience, demonstrated leadership qualities, a commitment to public service in their community, and fluent English.

Journalism and communication mid-career professionals with limited experience in the United States can apply for this program.

There are rolling deadlines for different regions, ranging typically from April to September. Interested applicants can apply here.
