1.2 Supplemental English Program

The Humphrey Program is again offering a Long-Term English (LTE) language 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. The Long-Term English Language Program (LTE) participants will be brought to the U.S. for an intensive 20-25 week pre-academic program to improve their English language skills before beginning their Humphrey Fellowship. LTE candidates should meet all Humphrey Program requirements, including leadership ability and commitment to public service, but may have lower language proficiency than would normally be required. The LTE training option is available in addition to existing pre-academic training options from 3-12 weeks.
