Hubert H. Humphrey Fellowship Program for Mid-Career Professionals to USA


The Humphrey Fellowship Program provides mid-career professionals from designated countries, including Indonesia, with an opportunity to enhance their professional capabilities through participation in specialized, ten-month, non-degree programs developed specifically for small clusters of Humphrey Fellows at selected US universities. The Humphrey Program was initiated in 1978 to honor the memory and accomplishments of the late Senator and Vice President, Hubert H. Humphrey. Fellows are selected based on their potential for national leadership and commitment to public service, in either the public or private sector. The program provides a basis for establishing long-lasting productive partnerships and relationships between citizens of the United States and their professional counterparts in other countries, fostering an exchange of knowledge and mutual understanding throughout the world.

Grant Benefits

The Humphrey Fellowship provides a monthly maintenance allowance, a book, and supplies allowance, tuition and fees when applicable, round-trip international travel to the host institution (and to the Fellow’s English-language training program when applicable) and domestic travel to Washington, DC for a special seminar. Supplementary funds are provided for professional activities such as field trips or attendance at conferences. Humphrey Fellowships are not renewable.

Humphrey Fellows should plan to bring with them some personal funds to cover incidental expenses not covered in the grant. Humphrey Fellowships do not include funds for dependents (family members). Humphrey Fellows are responsible for providing travel, insurance, and financial support for any dependents accompanying them in the United States.

Priority Disciplines

The programs arranged for Humphrey Fellows are related to one of the following fields: agricultural development/agricultural economics; communications/journalism; economic development/finance and banking; educational administration, planning, and policy; HIV/AIDS policy and prevention; human resource management; law and human rights; natural resources and environmental management; public health policy and management; public policy analysis and public administration; substance abuse education, treatment, and prevention; teaching of English as a foreign language; technology policy and management; trafficking in persons, policy and prevention; urban and regional planning; international religious freedom (new field); contagious and infectious diseases (new field). The university programs do not address themselves to the scientific or technical aspects of these fields, but rather to broad policy-making and problem-solving issues.

Placement in University Programs

Candidates who are selected for fellowships are placed in clusters by field of interest at US universities specially designated to host a group of Humphrey Fellows. IIE, therefore, is not able to make placements at specific universities requested by candidates or to award fellowships enabling candidates to attend a US university on the basis that they have already been admitted. Candidates should not apply directly to US institutions.
