The U.S Embassy Dhaka on Thursday announced the annual call for applications for the Hubert H. Humphrey Fellowship programme for the 2023-2024 academic year.
This unique, one-year programme is open to Bangladeshi professionals currently working in the public and private sectors, including for local and international non-governmental organizations.
The Hubert H. Humphrey Fellowship Programme is one of the U.S. government’s prestigious Fulbright programs that bring accomplished mid-career professionals to the United States for a year of non-degree, graduate-level study, leadership development, and substantive professional collaboration with U.S. counterparts.
By providing future leaders and policy makers with exposure to U.S. society, culture, and professional fields, the programme seeks to develop lasting, productive ties between programme participants and their Americans counterparts.
Fellowships are being offered in the areas such as, Human and Institutional Capacity, Rights and Freedoms, Sustainable Lands, and Thriving Communities, including Public Health, Contagious Diseases, Education Management, and others. More information regarding the fields of study and the eligibility criteria is available on our website.
Over the past few decades, nearly 100 Bangladeshi professionals have participated in this prestigious exchange program. Humphrey alumni include physicians, government officials, journalists, educators, and many more leaders from public and private organizations.
The Humphrey Fellowship covers tuition and fees for the fellow's English academic programmes, a monthly maintenance stipend, insurance coverage, an allowance for books and supplies, round-trip international airfare, supplementary funds for professional activities such as field trips and conferences, and expenses in connection with internships.
