The Hubert H. Humphrey Fellowship Program
The Hubert H. Humphrey Fellowship Program was established by Congress in 1978 in honor of the late Senator and Vice President.
In the spirit of a world leader concerned with fostering international understanding, the objective of the program is twofold:
1) to permit mid-career professionals from Africa, Asia, Central and South America, Central and Eastern Europe and the newly independent states of the former Soviet Union to gain expertise in their fields as they have evolved in the United States;
2) to allow U.S. citizens in the business, government, and academic communities to profit from the knowledge and perspectives of professional counterparts in other countries and to establish lasting ties with them. As part of the Fulbright International Educational Exchange activities, the Humphrey Fellowship Program is funded through the United States Department of State and administered nationally by the Institute of International Education.
