Call for applications: 2018-2019 Hubert H. Humphrey Fellowship Program

The United States Embassy in Mauritius invites applications for the Hubert H. Humphrey Fellowship Program. This one-year Fellowship program is offered to midcareer professionals who have a proven track record of leadership, a public service commitment, and the capacity to take full advantage of a self-defined program of independent non-degree study at a leading U.S. university. The program awards a certificate from the U.S. Government; it is not designed to deliver an advanced degree.

The Hubert H. Humphrey Fellowship Program brings accomplished professionals from designated countries around the world to the United States at a midpoint in their careers for a year of graduate level academic course work and professional development activities. Fellowships are granted competitively to professional candidates with a commitment to public service in either the public or private sector.

William Fulbright Foreign Scholarship Board. Awards will be announced by February-March 2018 for Fellowships during the 2018-2019 academic year. Awards for Fellows going to the Long-Term English program will be announced beginning of 2018.
