 Fellowship sends international journalists to US [Worldwide]

The Hubert H. Humphrey Fellowship Program provides a year of non degree graduate-level study, leadership development and professional collaboration with U.S. counterparts. Primary funding for the Humphrey Program is provided by the U.S. Congress through the Bureau of Educational and Cultural Affairs of the U.S. Department of State.

Participants from the following regions are eligible: Sub-Saharan Africa, Europe, Middle East and North Africa, East Asia and Pacific, South and Central Asia and the Western Hemisphere. For a full list of participating countries, click here.

During the program, fellows pursue both their individual program goals and work closely with their Humphrey colleagues in workshops and seminars. Unlike a typical American graduate school experience, the program encourages fellows to travel away from their host campus to learn more about American culture and to network with their American peers.

Applicants are required to have at least an undergraduate degree, a minimum of five years of full-time, professional experience, demonstrated leadership qualities, a commitment to public service in their community and fluent English.

There are rolling deadlines for different regions, ranging typically from April to September.
