Fellowship Program The Hubert H. Humphrey Fellowship Program


Job Description


The online application is now available for the Hubert H. Humphrey Fellowship Program in the United States.  The Hubert H. Humphrey Fellowship Program is a Fulbright program  that sends accomplished young and mid-career professionals with demonstrated leadership potential to the United States for a year of non-degree graduate-level study, leadership development, and substantive professional collaboration with U.S. counterparts.  Professional enrichment activities include professional visits, conferences, training programs, and a professional affiliation (work attachment). The professional affiliation provides first-hand exposure to an American work environment on a full-time basis for a minimum period of 6 weeks. Early in the academic year, each Fellow develops, with assistance from the local campus coordinator and faculty advisors, a detailed plan of practical professional activities geared to the Fellow’s Humphrey program objectives.

Eligibility Information: Appropriate candidates are young and mid-career professionals in leadership positions who have a commitment to public service and the potential for professional advancement. Prospective Fellows should have a minimum of five years full-time professional experience (prior to August 2016) in the  relevant field, after completing a university degree, and should be interested in the policy aspects of their field of specialization. Candidates must have completed a university degree program requiring at least three years of full-time study to qualify for participation in U.S. graduate study programs. They should be proficient in both written and spoken English and should normally have a minimum TOEFL score of 71 (internet-based), although exceptionally promising candidates with lower scores may be nominated for the Long-Term English (LTE) training.

Accordingly, they should demonstrate the required experience, skills, and commitment while also indicating how they can benefit from this program in ways that they have not experienced previously and are not likely to experience without the Humphrey Program. Applicants with distinguished records but who do not have a compelling need for the Humphrey experience are not appropriate candidates.
