The Humphrey Fellowship Program is based at 13 host universities across the United States. Humphrey Fellows are placed in cohorts of approximately 12 Fellows representing different countries and regions worldwide. For an academic year, they bring a wealth of experience and perspective to share with faculty, students, and the university community at large. The ten‐month, non‐degree program provides an excellent opportunity to enhance the international orientation of the host university.
