Opportunity Description

The Humphrey Fellowship Program is designed for experienced professionals who wish to advance their leadership abilities by exchanging information and understanding regarding topics of mutual interest in both the United States and the countries of the Fellows. The Fellowship, a non-degree program, offers fantastic opportunities for professional growth through carefully chosen university courses, conference participation, networking, and hands-on job experiences. The Program encourages Fellows to travel outside their host campus to learn more about American culture and network with American peers, unlike a traditional graduate school experience. While working with their Humphrey colleagues in workshops and seminars, fellows pursue their specific program goals throughout the year.
