Call for Applications: 2025-2026 Hubert H. Humphrey Fellowship Program

April 30 @ 8:00 am - June 24 @ 5:00 pm

2025-2026 Hubert H. Humphrey Fellowship Program (HHH)

The Hubert H. Humphrey Fellowship Program is a United States Government funded program, sponsored by the U.S. Department of State, Bureau of Educational and Cultural Affairs (ECA). At ECA, the Humphrey Program is coordinated by the Humphrey Fellowships and Institutional Linkages Branch (ECA/A/S/U) of the Office of Global Educational Programs. It is administered by the Institute of International Education (IIE) under a cooperative agreement with ECA.

Unlike the traditional Fulbright and most other foreign scholarship programs, the Humphrey Fellowship is a one-year, mid-career, non-degree program for professionals interested in strengthening leadership skills, as well as learning more about their professional fields of study. The Humphrey Program also emphasizes the mutual exchange of knowledge and understanding about issues of common concern to the U.S. and Fellows’ home countries.

During the academic year, Fellows are placed at university campuses where they pursue individual program goals and work closely with their Humphrey colleagues in workshops and seminars. Fellows are also expected, however, to engage in professional development activities outside of their university campus, attending conferences and seminars, and completing a six-week professional affiliation requirement.

The Humphrey Program also differs in that Fellows are grouped together by professional fields at the various universities. Since many of these Humphrey cohorts have as many different nationalities as there are Fellows, in addition to learning about American culture Fellows also have to accommodate customs and traditions from other regions of the world. This requires a person who is adaptable, flexible and willing to tolerate differences.

The Hubert H. Humphrey Fellowship Awards for Thai Citizen

Up to three grants are offered and each covers international travel, tuition and fees, monthly maintenance allowance, professional visits/affiliation, settling-in allowance, baggage allowance, book/supplies allowance, and supplementary health insurance. There will be no provision for dependents to accompany fellows, nor will fellows receive a separate allowance to support dependents.
