To access the Humphrey Fellowship application and learn more about applying, please contact the U.S. Embassy (Public Affairs Section) or Binational Fulbright Commission in your country.
The Humphrey Fellowship Program is for experienced professionals interested in strengthening their leadership skills through a mutual exchange of knowledge and understanding about issues of common concern in the U.S. and Fellows’ home countries.
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.
Embassies and Commissions must submit their nominations to the Institute of International Education office in Washington, DC by October 1. Deadlines for applicants vary by country.
