Application for the
Hubert H. Humphrey Fellowship Program
for Mid-Career Professional Study in the United States in 2019-20

• A Fulbright Program •

The U.S. Educational Foundation in Nepal (the Fulbright Commission) announces the competition for the Humphrey Fellowships for the academic year 2019-2020. The program brings mid-career professionals to the U.S. for 10 months of non-degree study and professional experience. Fellowships are granted to those who can show a strong commitment to public service in the government, NGO, or private sectors, and a potential for national scholarship.

In addition to the regular Humphrey program, USEF is again offering a Long-Term English 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.

Qualified women candidates and members of disadvantaged communities are strongly encouraged to apply.

Completed online applications are due no later than 4:00pm Monday, July 9, 2018.
