For mid-career professional for a 10-month non-degree program of internship and study – 10 months
ABOUT THE PROGRAM
The Humphry Program is a 10-month, mid-career, non-degree program for professionals interested in strengthening leadership skills, as well as learning more about their professional fields of study. The Program also emphasizes the mutual exchange of knowledge and understanding about issues of common concern to the U.S. and Fellows’ home countries.
Humphrey Fellows are grouped together by professional fields at the various universities. Since many of these Humphrey cohorts have as many different nationalities as there are Fellows, in addition to learning about American culture Fellows also have to accommodate customs and traditions from other regions of the world. This requires a person who is adaptable, flexible and willing to tolerate differences.
Humphrey Fellows are placed at university campuses where they pursue individual program goals and work closely with their Humphrey colleagues in workshops and seminars. Fellows are also expected, however, to engage in professional development activities outside of their university campus, attending conferences and seminars, and completing a six-week professional affiliation requirement.
Funding covers international travel, tuition and fees, monthly maintenance allowance, professional visits/affiliation, settling-in allowance, baggage allowance, book/supplies allowance, and supplementary health insurance. There will be no provision for dependents to accompany fellows, nor will fellows receive a separate allowance to support dependents.

• Agricultural and Rural Development
