HUBERT H. HUMPHREY FELLOWSHIP PROGRAM
(for Mid-Career Professionals)
The United States Educational Foundation in Nepal (also known as the Fulbright Commission or USEF/N) announces the competition for Hubert H. Humphrey Fellowships for the academic year 2020-2021.
The Humphrey Fellowship Program brings mid-career professionals from developing countries to the United States for one academic year of graduate study and professional experiences. Fellowships are granted to those who can show a strong commitment to public service in the government, NGO, or private sectors, and a potential for national leadership. The Humphrey Fellowship is a non-degree program.
In addition to the regular Humphrey program, USEF-Nepal is again offering a Long-Term English (LTE) training opportunity to facilitate the participation of candidates from non-elite populations, rural areas, minority groups and others who may be excellent Humphrey material but are lacking the necessary language skills.
USEF-Nepal will nominate up to three candidates for the Hubert H. Humphrey Fellowship and up to three candidates for the Hubert H. Humphrey Long-Term English Language Program. The final selection is made by the U.S. State Department and the J. William Fulbright Foreign Scholarship Board (FSB) in Washington, D.C.
The Humphrey Fellowships are offered only in the following areas:
1) Agricultural and Rural Development
3) Economic Development
4) Educational Administration, Planning, and Policy
5) Finance and Banking
6) Higher Education Administration
7) HIV/AIDS Policy and Prevention
