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.

Please note that teachers, technicians, or researchers (except for teachers of English as a Foreign Language and specialists in substance abuse education, treatment and prevention) are not eligible for the Humphrey Fellowship.
