Hubert H. Humphrey Program

The Humphrey Fellowship Program brings accomplished mid-level professionals from around the world to the U.S. for a year of study and professional development.  The Humphrey Fellowship is a non-degree program. Fellowships are awarded competitively to candidates with excellent academic and professional qualifications, as well as a commitment to public service.   Fellowships are available only in specific fields: Public Policy and Administration, Law and Human RightsCommunications and JournalismEducational Administration, Planning and Policy Agricultural and Rural Development, Natural Resources, Environmental Policy, and Climate Change and Public Health Policy and Management.

As a non-degree program, the Fellowship offers valuable opportunities for professional development through selected university courses, conference attendance, networking, and practical work experiences. During the year, Fellows pursue both their individual program goals and work closely with their Humphrey colleagues in workshops and seminars. Unlike a typical graduate school experience, the Program encourages Fellows to travel away from their host campus to learn more about American culture and to network with their American peers. If you are interested in broadening your perspectives and becoming a global leader, the Humphrey Fellowship is for you.

Candidates should be Swazi citizens between the ages of 30 and 50. Applicants must hold an undergraduate degree (4 years of university), and have five years of substantial professional experience, demonstrated leadership, as well as be proficient in English.
