- Proficient in both written and spoken English and will be required to take an Internet-based Test (iBT) of English as a Foreign Language (TOEFL).
How Does it Work?

- They are assigned in clusters of 8-15 to the institution offering the most appropriate program in their area of interest.
- These clusters are balanced geographically, permitting interaction among fellows from various countries.
- Programs arranged for the Humphrey fellows will begin in August 2023.
- They include academic coursework at the master’s level, activities such as seminars, special projects, field trips, etc., and professional affiliations with appropriate organizations.
- Each fellow designs his/her individual program with the Humphrey coordinator’s assistance.
