Hubert Humphrey Fellowships 2024-2025 in USA for International Applicants: My friends who are looking for scholarships and fellowships, this is another update on the Hubert H. Humphrey Fellowship, which is being funded by the United States for the class of 2024–2025 and is now accepting online applications through July 1, 2023.
As you begin considering this funding, let me remind you that the Hubert Humphrey Fellowship Program is intended for researchers and students who want to study how to improve their leadership abilities through mutual knowledge and understanding-sharing about issues of shared concern with the United States and fellow nations.
This nondegree program, the H. Humphrey fellowship, provides excellent chances for professional growth through attending conferences, taking certain university courses, networking, and gaining real-world work experience. Fellows work closely with their Humphrey colleagues in workshops and seminars in addition to pursuing their own program objectives. This US fellowship program encourages Fellows to travel outside of their host university in order to network with their American counterparts and gain deeper insight into American culture, in contrast to the conventional graduate school experience.
Humphrey Fellowship is for you if you want to widen your horizons and develop into a global leader. Let’s review some of their features so we can decide whether or not to apply:

Humphrey Fellowships Application Process 2024-2025:-
The Humphrey Program is facilitated overseas by Binational Fulbright Commissions/Foundations or the Public Affairs Sections of U.S. Embassies. Commissions and Embassies review applications submitted for the Humphrey Fellowship Program, invite selected applicants for interviews, and determine which applications are to be forwarded for further consideration to the Institute of International Education in Washington, D.C. Please contact the Embassy or Commission in your country to learn of its selection criteria.
Stage 2: Screening by the Institute of International Education
Embassies and Commissions must submit their nominations to the Institute of International Education (IIE) office in Washington, DC by July 1 however deadline for applicants to submit their applications to the Embassy or Commission varies by country and please check with the Embassy or Fulbright Commission in your country to learn of its application deadline.
IIE reviews all submitted applications for basic eligibility and then convenes regional Candidate Review Committees (CRC) to evaluate the applications.
Stage 3: Candidate Review Committees
Candidate Review Committees convene in Washington, DC in December. Independent expert panelists with regional experience who work in academia, international organizations, or non-governmental organizations are recruited to review applications from a particular region of the world.
Stage 4: Approval by the J. William Fulbright Foreign Scholarship Board
The J. William Fulbright Foreign Scholarship Board (FSB) was created by Congress to supervise the Fulbright Program and other Fulbright exchange activities, including the Humphrey Fellowship Program. The FSB sets policies and procedures for the administration of the Humphrey Fellowship Program, has final authority for the selection of all fellows and supervises the conduct of the Program both in the United States and abroad.
Stage 5: Placement of Selected Humphrey Fellows
After receiving approval from the FSB, the Department of State will announce the final election results to participating U.S. Embassies and Binational Fulbright Commissions, who will inform candidates of their status. The Institute of International Education places the approved candidates at U.S. universities that have been selected to host Humphrey Fellows. Placements are determined by candidates’ fields of study and the program plan statements expressed in their applications.
Application Deadline of Humphrey Scholarship: July 1, 2023
Let’s now discuss how much time you have left to submit your entire Hubert Humphrey fellowship application, so make sure to mark July 1, 2023, as the deadline for those applying to the class of 2024–2025.
However, keep in mind that if you are submitting through embassies or commissions, they must send their nominations by October 1, 2023, to the Institute of International Education headquarters located in Washington, DC.
Can you bring your family to the USA?
uS Fellowship winners may choose to apply to have their family join them shortly after they have arrived in the U.S. Careful consideration should be given to bringing one’s family, however, as the Humphrey Program is very demanding, and Fellows spend considerable time away from their host campus and this Humphrey Program also does not provide an additional maintenance allowance for dependents.
Fellows must show proof of financial support, adequate insurance coverage for their dependents that meet U.S. State Department requirements, and child care plans before they may be approved to apply for J-2 visa(s) for their dependents. Not all countries permit Humphrey Fellows to bring their dependents during their Fellowship year. Please check with the U.S.
