The Hubert H. Humphrey Fellowship is a one-year non-degree graduate-level study and professional development program for accomplished young and mid-career professionals. Throughout the year, Fellows pursue individual program goals through university coursework, conferences, networking, and practical work experiences. Unlike a typical graduate school experience, the Program encourages Fellows to travel away from their host campus to learn more about American culture and network with their peers.
