understanding between the people of the United States and other countries through the exchange
of persons, knowledge, and skills. Fulbright grants will be awarded for graduate study at the
master’s degree level in all fields of study except medicine. (Note: Applications will be accepted
in the field of public health.)
Humphrey Fellowships for Laos
The Hubert H. Humphrey Fellowship Program is a Fulbright program that provides mid-level
professionals from developing countries an opportunity to enhance their professional capabilities
through participation in specialized, 10-month, and non-degree programs at selected American
universities. Fellowships will be granted for the 2013-2014 academic year (August 2013 – June
2014). Ideal candidates have a proven track record of leadership, a public service commitment,
and the capacity to take full advantage of a self-defined program of independent study at a
leading U.S. university. The program awards a certificate from the U.S. Government; it is not
designed to deliver an advanced degree. Professionals from both the public and the private
sectors are eligible to apply. Female, minority and candidates from outside Vientiane are
