APPLICATION FOR ADMISSION TO THE
HUBERT H. HUMPHREY FELLOWSHIP PROGRAM- 2016-2017
FOR MID-CAREER PROFESSIONAL STUDY IN THE UNITED STATES
Information and Application Instructions
PROGRAM DESCRIPTION: The Humphrey Fellowship Program provides mid-career professionals from designated countries
of Africa, Asia, Latin America, the Caribbean, the Middle East, Europe and Eurasia with an opportunity to enhance their
professional capabilities through participation in specialized, 10-month, non-degree programs developed specifically for small
clusters of Humphrey Fellows at selected U.S. universities. The Humphrey Program was initiated in 1978 to honor the memory
and accomplishments of the late Senator ...view middle of the document...

To accomplish these objectives, programs
are designed to include various combinations of course work, independent projects, internships, consultations with U.S. faculty
or experts, field trips, and special seminars. Under the guidance of a designated faculty advisor or “coordinator,” Fellows plan
programs that best suit their individual career development needs.
DURATION OF GRANT: The program arranged for Humphrey Fellows extends from August or early September to the following
June. Applicants who need additional English training may be required to arrive in the United States as early as late May for
intensive language study before beginning their regular university program. Candidates must be able to participate in the full
period of the English and/or university programs.
NONDEGREE STATUS: The program designed for Humphrey Fellows does not result in the awarding of a degree. While
Fellows are able to enroll in courses relevant to their professional interests, the Humphrey Program is not appropriate for
those who wish to concentrate on academic work required for a U.S. degree. Humphrey Fellows spend a considerable
portion of their time engaged in off-campus activities such as internships, field trips, workshops, and special projects that give
them practical experience in their professional fields. Fellows who successfully complete the program are awarded a Certificate
of Participation.
FINANCIAL PROVISIONS: The Humphrey Fellowship provides a monthly maintenance allowance, a book and supplies
allowance, tuition and fees when applicable, round-trip international travel to the host institution (and to the Fellow’s Englishlanguage training program when applicable) and domestic travel to Washington, D.C. for a special seminar. Supplementary
funds are available for professional activities such as field trips or attendance at conferences. Humphrey Fellowships are not
renewable.
Humphrey Fellows should plan to bring with them some personal funds to cover incidental expenses not covered in the grant.
Humphrey Fellowships do not include funds for dependents (family members). Humphrey Fellows are responsible for
providing travel, insurance, and financial support for any dependents accompanying them to the United States. Please note that
English and orientation centers cannot accommodate dependents. Therefore, dependents should not arrive in the United States
until the Fellows are settled in their academic year programs and have secured housing (at least 30 days after the Fellow’s
arrival) at the host campus.
