Announcing an Opportunity for Mid-Career Professionals to Study in the United States
The U.S. Embassy in Baghdad is pleased to announce that it is accepting applications for the U.S. Government-sponsored Hubert H. Humphrey Fellowship Program.
This program directly supports the goals of the U.S.-Iraq Strategic Framework Agreement to enhance mutual understanding and strengthen connections between the people of the United States and Iraq through academic exchange.
The Hubert H. Humphrey Fellowship Program brings accomplished mid-career professionals with demonstrated leadership potential to the United States for one year of non-degree graduate-level study, leadership development, and professional collaboration with U.S. counterparts.
The program’s goal is to provide future leaders and policy makers in Iraq with an understanding of U.S. society and culture, as well as professional experience that will provide a basis for lasting, productive ties between Iraqis and their professional colleagues in the United States. Mid-career professionals with a minimum of a Bachelor’s degree, at least five years of professional experience, and a commitment to public service are encouraged to apply.
For further details about eligibility requirements and information about the application process, visit the U.S. Embassy website: http://iraq.usembassy.gov/hubert-humphrey-fellowship.html
There is no cost to participate in the Hubert H. Humphrey Fellowship Program. The U.S. Department of State will fully fund academic study, travel, health insurance, housing, and provide a modest living allowance while in the United States for those selected. The application deadline is July 18, 2014.
