The 10-month fellowship comprises academic coursework and an internship in a relevant professional organisation.

"Fellows are accomplished mid-career professionals with demonstrated leadership and the capacity to develop a self-defined program of independent academic and professional development," the Embassy said.

Only online applications will be accepted this application cycle. Applications are due on Friday, May 27 at http://apply.embark.com/student/humphrey/fellowship/

The Embassy said that the Humphrey Fellows pursue graduate-level studies in the US, built leadership skills and built mutual cultural understanding with Americans.

"Because the Humphrey Fellowship does not offer a degree, Humphrey Fellows design and implement individualised 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," the US Embassy said.
