Hubert. H. Humphrey Fellowship Program, 2022, U.S. Embassy, Angola

Publish Date: May 08, 2022

Deadline: Jun 20, 2022

The U.S. Embassy in Angola is pleased to announce the applications for Hubert. H. Humphrey Program to provides mid-career professionals from designated countries – including Angola – with an opportunity to enhance their professional capacities through participation in specialized 10-month non degree programs developed specifically for small clusters of Humphrey Fellows at selected U.S. universities.
The Humphrey Program was launched in 1978 to honor the memory and accomplishments of the late U.S. Senator and Vice President, Hubert H. Humphrey.
During their year-long stay at a host American university, Humphrey Fellows are invited to take graduate courses relevant to their professional interests. However, as the Humphrey Fellowship is not a degree program, participants spend a considerable portion of their time engaged in professional development activities including: consultations and affiliations with U.S. faculty and experts, field trips, workshops, research projects and the development of practical useful strategies that could be applied in the Fellows’ home countries.
