The Program provides a year of professional enrichment in the United States for experienced professionals from designated countries throughout the world. Fellows are selected based on their potential for leadership and their commitment to public service in either the public or private sector.
UC Davis is one of 15 universities in the U.S. selected to host Humphrey Fellows. Along with Cornell University, UC Davis welcomes scholars with primary interests in agriculture or environmental science.
Each year approximately 160 Fellows funded by the Bureau of Educational and Cultural Affairs of the U.S. Department of State engage in non-degree study and related professional experiences.
