The Hubert H. Humphrey Fellowship Program is a Fulbright exchange activity that provides mid-career professionals from countries in states of development and transition ten months of non-degree academic study and related professional experiences in the United States. Humphrey Fellows are selected based on their potential for leadership and their commitment to public service in either the public or the private sector. The Humphrey Program fosters a mutual exchange of knowledge and understanding about issues of common concern in the United States and the FellowsÂ’ home countries. The Program offers Fellows opportunities for leadership development and professional engagement with Americans and their counterparts from many nations. Fifteen major universities in the United States serve as host campuses for Humphrey Fellows. These host universities are chosen for their excellence in relevant Humphrey fields of study and for the resources and support they offer Humphrey Fellows.
