Hubert H. Humphrey Fellowship Program – Timor Leste

Hubert H. Humphrey Fellowship Program – Timor Leste


Deadline: 25-Jun-21

The U.S. Embassy Dili is pleased to announce the 2022-2023 Hubert H. Humphrey Fellowship Program for citizens of Timor-Leste.

The Humphrey Program brings young and mid-career professionals from designated countries to the United States for a year of non-degree graduate-level study, leadership development, and professional collaboration with U.S. counterparts.

Humphrey Fellows pursue graduate-level study in the United States, build leadership skills, and build mutual cultural understanding with Americans. Because the Humphrey Fellowship does not offer a degree, Humphrey Fellows design and implement individualized programs to acquire career-related knowledge, interact with colleagues and gain professional experience, including arrangements for a six-week professional internship. In addition, Fellows may also attend special enrichment activities throughout their program. These activities are excellent opportunities to network with Humphrey Fellows from other countries and to interact with prominent Americans across a range of professional fields.
