Applications Invited for the Hubert H. Humphrey Fellowship Programme

Assistant Secretary of State for the Bureau of Educational and Cultural Affairs (ECA)

The Bureau of Educational and Cultural Affairs of the U.S. Department of State is inviting applications from journalism and communication midcareer professionals with limited experience in the United States for the Hubert H. Humphrey Fellowship Programme, provided by the U.S. Congress.

Eligible to applicants from Sub-Saharan Africa, Europe, Middle East and North Africa, East Asia and Pacific, South and Central Asia and the Western Hemisphere, applicants are required to have at least an undergraduate degree, a minimum of five years of full-time, professional experience, demonstrated leadership qualities, a commitment to public service in their community and fluent English.

Fellows pursue both their individual programme goals and work closely with their Humphrey colleagues in workshops and seminars during the programme. The programme encourages fellows to travel away from their host campus to learn more about American culture and to network with their American peers, unlike a typical American graduate school experience.

The programme runs different deadlines for different regions, ranging typically from April to September.
