2025-2026 Hubert H. Humphrey Fellowship Program

Application deadline – July 31, 2024, 11:59 PM NPT

Supplemental English Program

Selected candidates (nominees) are expected to be proficient in English as measured by the Test of English as a Foreign Language (TOEFL). In order to engage with candidates from non-elite populations, rural areas, minority groups, and others who may be excellent candidates but are lacking the necessary language skills, English language training is available for nominees with lower TOEFL scores. Candidates with insufficient testing scores may be brought to the U.S. for English language training prior to beginning the program at their host university.  

Currently, two opportunities for English training in the U.S. are available to prepare Fellows to participate in the academic year Humphrey Fellowship:

  1. Long-Term English (LTE) language training is an intensive 16-week program; and
  2. Pre-Academic English (Pre-Ac) language training is an intensive 8-week course.

English language training participants will train together in groups at different campuses and then transfer to their academic-year host campuses after completing LTE or Pre-Ac.
