Humphrey Program


Hubert H. Humphrey Fellowship Program

The Hubert H. Humphrey Fellowship Program brings 200 outstanding mid-career professionals from countries in states of development or transition to the United States to engage in non-degree study and related professional experiences at select American universities. Started in 1978, the program now has a network of over 4,200 alumni in 157 countries around the world.

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.


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. If you are interested in broadening your perspectives and becoming a global leader, find out if the the Humphrey Fellowship is right for you.
