Hubert H. Humphrey Fellowship Program
The Hubert H. Humphrey Fellowship Program was initiated in 1978 to honor the late senator and vice president and his life-long commitment to international cooperation and public service. The program brings accomplished mid-career leaders from developing nations and emerging democracies to the United States for an academic year to study, gain professional experience and foster cultural exchange.
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 Humphrey Fellowship Program's mission is to foster a mutual exchange of knowledge and understanding about issues of common concern in the United States and the Fellows' home countries while offering Fellows valuable opportunities for leadership development and professional engagement with Americans and their counterparts from many nations.
