Hubert H. Humphrey Fellowship Program

The Hubert H. Humphrey Fellowship Program is a Fulbright program that brings accomplished young and mid-career professionals with demonstrated leadership potential to the United States for a year of graduate-level non-degree academic coursework and professional development activities. By providing future leaders and policy makers with experience in U.S. society, culture, and professional fields, the program provides a basis for lasting, productive ties between Americans and their professional counterparts overseas.

Final approval of candidates recommended by the independent panels is provided by the Fulbright Scholarship Board. Primary funding for the Humphrey program is provided by the Department’s Bureau of Educational and Cultural Affairs (ECA) from within its congressional appropriation for exchanges.

Competition for Academic Year 2019-2020 is now open.
