Hubert H. Humphrey Fellowship Program Components

Academic: The Hubert Humphrey program is classified as a non-degree program. Humphrey Fellows cannot transfer from non-degree status to degree status. Humphrey Fellows pursue tailored study programs at participating host institutions, where the freedom from the requirements of a degree program gives each Fellow the flexibility to pursue a self-directed, individualized program.

Professional: Early in the academic year, each Fellow develops, with assistance from the local campus coordinator and faculty advisors, a plan for professional activities carefully geared to the Fellow’s need for relevant, practical professional experiences. A Fellow’s professional-development plan may include professional visits, conferences, and a professional affiliation (mid-career internship/residency) that must be at least six weeks in duration.
