Humphrey Fellowship (Mid-Career Professionals)
Hubert H. Humphrey Fellowships are awarded competitively to mid-career, policy-level professionals with proven leadership skills and a commitment to public service in either the public or private sector. This NON-DEGREE fellowship provides for one academic year (usually ten months) of study and related professional experiences in the U.S. in a variety of development oriented fields. Recently, the Humphrey program has made it possible for candidates to participate in a Long-Term English program, thus allowing a broader range of candidates to be selected.
Current fields of study and affiliation under the Humphrey Program include:
- Agricultural Development/Agricultural Economics
- Economic Development
- Education, including Educational Planning, Educational Administration, Curriculum Development, Teaching of English as a Foreign Language;
- Finance and Banking

The annual Humphrey Fellowship Program competition in Nepal is usually announced in June of each year and interviews held in September. The Commission annually nominates up to six candidates whose final selection is made in the U.S.
