Thirteen Hubert H. Humphrey fellows from a dozen emerging democracies and developing countries are spending the year at the Maxwell School partaking in graduate study, professional development and cultural exchange. 

This year’s fellows hail from: Brazil, Central African Republic, China, India, Mozambique, Pakistan, Panama, Papua New Guinea, South Sudan, Suriname, Ukraine, and Vietnam.  

The fellows’ diverse professional experience and academic interests include: NGO management; post-conflict reconstruction, public administration, journalism, urban and rural development, IT policy and management, cybersecurity, public affairs, public-private partnerships, and policy implementation among other areas.

While at Syracuse University, Fellows engage with students, faculty, civic organizations and their professional counterparts in diverse learning and exchange opportunities.  This collaboration can take any number of forms, including resources for faculty, classes, clubs and organizations. 

The fellows are part of a cohort of 150 Humphrey fellows from 97 countries.  Syracuse University is one of 13 campuses across the country to host fellows.

The Hubert H. Humphrey Fellowship program was initiated in 1978 to honor Vice President Hubert H. Humphrey and his life-long commitment to international cooperation and public service.  The program is sponsored and funded by the U.S. Department of State and administered by the Institute of International Education.
