Humphrey Fellowships for the academic year 2018-2019, in order to bring mid-career professionals from developing countries to the United States for one academic year of graduate study and professional experiences.

Fellowships are granted to candidates who can demonstrate a strong commitment to public service in the government, NGO, or private sectors, and a potential for national leadership.  The Hubert H. Humphrey Fellowship is a non-degree program.

The Humphrey Program is again offering a Long-Term English (LTE) language training opportunity to facilitate the participation of candidates from non-elite populations, rural areas, minority groups and others who may be excellent Humphrey material but are lacking the necessary language skills.
