The Humphrey Fellowship Program is a U.S. government international exchange program supported by the people of the United States.
The prestigious Hubert H. Humphrey Fellowship Program, provides 10 months of professional enrichment and non-degree graduate-level study in the United States for accomplished mid-level professionals. The program combines academic study with a practicum, where you will be placed at a relevant institution for hands-on experience in your particular field. One of the professional fields in the Humphrey Program is “Communications/Journalism.”
Humphrey Fellows are selected based on their potential for leadership and their commitment to public service in either the public or the private sector. The Program fosters a mutual exchange of knowledge and understanding about issues of common concern in the United States and the Fellows’ home countries and offers Fellows valuable opportunities for leadership development and professional engagement with Americans and their counterparts from more than 90 different nations. Over 5,000 men and women have been honored as Humphrey Fellows since the program began in 1978.
Approximately 170 Fellowships are awarded annually. Fifteen major universities in the United States host Humphrey Fellows. These host universities are chosen for their excellence in the Program’s designated fields of study and for the resources and support they offer Humphrey Fellows. The Humphrey Program is a Fulbright Program.
The application closes on July 31, 2017.
