Applications Open for the 2018 Humphrey Fellowship Program

Port Moresby, Papua New Guinea: The U.S. Embassy is pleased to announce the 2018 Humphrey Fellowship Program for citizens of Papua New Guinea, Solomon Islands, and Vanuatu.  The ten-month fellowship consists of academic coursework and an internship in a relevant professional organization.  Fellows are accomplished mid-career professionals with demonstrated leadership and the capacity to develop a self-defined program of independent academic and professional development.  Humphrey Fellows pursue graduate-level study in the United States, build leadership skills, and build mutual cultural understanding with Americans.  Because the Humphrey Fellowship does not offer a degree, Humphrey Fellows design and implement individualized programs to acquire career-related knowledge, interact with colleagues and gain professional experience, including arrangements for a six-week professional internship.  In addition, Fellows may also attend special enrichment activities throughout their program.  These activities are excellent opportunities to network with Humphrey Fellows from other countries and to interact with prominent Americans across a range of professional fields.

The prestigious Hubert H. Humphrey Fellowship Program provides future leaders and policy makers with experience in U.S. society, culture, and professional fields.  It also provides a basis for lasting, productive ties between Americans and their professional counterparts overseas.

The Humphrey Fellowship covers international travel, travel within the United States as required, tuition and fees, books, a monthly maintenance stipend, and limited funds for professional development activities such as attendance at conferences, field trips, and professional affiliations.

Only online applications will be accepted this application cycle.  Applications are due on Monday, June 12, 2017 via
