The Fulbright program, Hubert H. Humphrey Fellowship Program, is intended for brilliant young and mid-career professionals from developing countries. The fellowship allows candidates to go to the United States for ten months for non-degree graduate study and related practical professional experiences.
The fellowship design meets the requirement of policymakers, planners, administrators, and managers in the government, public and private sectors, and non-governmental organizations, who have a public service commitment, demonstrated leadership potential, and commitment to their country's development.
The Humphrey fellows embark on master's level work directly related to their professional needs and fields of interest but do not result in the awarding of a degree. Instead, they are assigned in groups of 8-15 to the institution offering the most applicable program in their area of interest. These clusters are balanced geographically, enabling interaction among fellows from various countries.
