The Embassy of the United States of America in Moldova is pleased to announce the Hubert H. Humphrey Fellowship Program competition for the 2023-2024 academic year.

Application Deadline: June 15, 2022

The Hubert H. Humphrey Fellowship Program brings accomplished young and mid-career professionals with demonstrated leadership potential to the United States for an academic year of non-degree graduate-level study, leadership development, and substantive professional collaboration with U.S. counterparts.  By providing future leaders with experience in U.S. society, culture, and professional fields, the program provides a basis for lasting, productive ties between Americans and their Moldovan professional counterparts. While program participants receive a certificate from the U.S. Government, the program is not designed to deliver an advanced degree.

  • should have a minimum of five years full-time professional experience in the relevant field
  • should be interested in the policy aspects of their field of specialization.
  • must have completed a university degree program
  • should have specific objectives for a research/study project
  • should be proficient in both written and spoken English.  Selected finalists will be required to take the TOEFL, which the Embassy will pay for.

Ineligible candidates include:

  • recent university graduates (even if they currently hold significant positions);
  • university professors or academic researchers with no management responsibilities (except in the fields of Substance Abuse Education, Prevention, and Treatment and Teaching of English as a Foreign Language);
  • individuals who have attended a graduate school in the United States for one academic year or more during the seven years prior to the program;
  • individuals with U.S. in-country experience of any kind lasting more than six months during the five years prior to the program.
