The Hubert H. Humphrey Fellowship Program is a Fulbright program that brings accomplished young and mid-career professionals to the United States for a year of non-degree graduate-level study, leadership development, and substantive professional collaboration with U.S. counterparts. By providing future leaders and policy makers with exposure to U.S. society, culture, and professional fields, the program provides a basis for lasting, productive ties between Americans and their professional counterparts overseas. The Humphrey Program was initiated in 1978 to honor the memory and accomplishments of the late Senator and Vice President, Hubert H. Humphrey.

Fellowships are granted competitively to professional candidates in either the public or private sector with a commitment to public service.
