The United States Embassy in Iraq is pleased to announce the opening of the application period for the Hubert H. Humphrey Fellowship Program.  This one-year Fellowship is open to mid-career professionals who have a proven track record of leadership, a commitment to public service, 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 confer 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.  The Humphrey Program was initiated in 1978 to honor the memory and accomplishments of the late Senator and Vice President, Hubert H. Humphrey.  Fellows are selected based on their potential for leadership and commitment to public service.

The program provides a basis for establishing lasting ties between citizens of the United States and their professional counterparts in other countries, fostering an exchange of knowledge and mutual understanding throughout the world.
