Hubert Humphrey Fellowships in the USA

The Hubert Humphrey Fellowship Program, a non-degree program dedicated to international undergraduate students, is an amazing opportunity for those who wish to strengthen their leadership skills and connect with the American peers. The Hubert Humphrey Fellowship is dedicated to experienced professionals willing to understand USA’s common concerns through a mutual knowledge exchange. The Fellowship program is not only a valuable opportunity for international graduate students striving for professional development through practical experiences, networking, and diversified courses and conferences. The Fellowship program is also an insightful program for students to build a bridge between their culture and the American one.

The number of Hubert Humphrey Fellowships awarded

Annually, up to 200 fellowships programs are awarded which means that this opportunity can be embraced by many dedicated students to their academic endeavor. Unlike a common school experience, the Hubert Humphrey program allows students to pursue their individual programs and, at the same time, work with other Humphrey colleagues in seminars and workshops. The recipients will have to travel from their campus and get in touch with the American peers.

Which are the host institutions where Fellows will be placed?

Fellows represent the recipients who have secured the Hubert Humphrey Fellowships. They will not be able to select the institution where they wish to enroll. Rather they will be assigned in groups of 7-15 to the most appropriate host institution regarding their professional fields and areas of interest. Here is a list of the universities where fellows will be assigned: https://www.humphreyfellowship.org/host-universities. Also, check the complete list of the available fields of study: https://www.humphreyfellowship.org/program-fields

Who can apply for the Hubert Humphrey Fellowships?

International students who are originally from the following regions: East Asia and Pacific, South and Central Asia, Western Hemisphere, Europe and Eurasia, Sub-Saharan Africa, Middle East and North Africa. Please review the complete list of countries here: https://www.humphreyfellowship.org/participating-countries-region

Which are the eligibility criterions?

Applicants must have an undergraduate degree along with a minimum of 5 years of full-time professional experience. They would have to demonstrate their leadership qualities. Also, the applicants should have public service record and English language abilities.

IMPORTANT NOTE! For a complete list of the program requirements, students are advised to contact the U.S Embassy Public Affairs Section or Fulbright Commission in their countries of residence.

Which is the value of the Hubert Humphrey Fellowships?

Recipients will have their tuition and fees paid at the university where they were assigned. They will also receive pre-academic English language training. The Fellowship will cover also the book allowance, sickness and accident coverage, a living allowance, a one –time computer, air travel and professional development allowance. Please consult this list for more info: https://www.humphreyfellowship.org/fellowship-provisions

How students can apply?

It is highly important that students who are interested to contact the U.S Embassy within their countries or the Binational Fulbright Commission. An U.S Embassy representative can advise them of the internal deadline for receiving applications. Even though deadlines will vary by country, they will fall around May to September annually. Students should access this link https://www.humphreyfellowship.org/participating-countries-region and select their countries of origins to find where they can locate the U.S Embassy within their countries.

Good luck!

    I am a Ugandan diploma holder in business administration and an evangelist by calling. I got save on Saturday April 28\’ 2007 and Since then, through small fellowships and bible studies I evolved in, I have been serving God in various areas of His ministry and currently I’m a head of missions and evangelism of my community church (St. Stephens – Kisugu church of Uganda). I’m also realizing that God’s calling is now weighing up my profession.
    My aim for this introduction is that I am looking for a scholarship to enable me study the bible and build my skills in God\’s missions and evangelism operations to a higher level. I will be very grateful.
    Thanks
