The U.S. Embassy in Moldova is pleased to announce the annual competitions for the Hubert H. Humphrey Fellowship Program for the 2021-2022 academic year.

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.
