This December, the American Center in Moscow is proud to host the Hubert H. Humphrey Fellowship Program’s 45th Anniversary Global Policy Series. Each session of the series will feature an accomplished Humphrey alumni discussing how the program has influenced their career trajectory and answering audience questions. The series will feature alumni discussing rich and varying topics, ranging from environmental journalism to disability rights.

The Hubert H. Humphrey Fellowship Program is a 10-month professional enrichment program facilitating non-degree graduate-level study in the United States for accomplished mid-level professionals from around the world. Fellows are nominated by U.S. Embassies or Fulbright Commissions based on their leadership potential and a demonstrated commitment to public service.
