Fellows are selected based on potential for leadership and commitment to public service. By providing future leaders and policy makers with experience in U. S. society, culture, and professional fields, the program provides a basis for lasting, productive ties between Americans and their professional counterparts overseas.

Fellowships are granted competitively to both public and private sector candidates with strong leadership potential and a commitment to public service in the fields of:

  • Communications/Journalism
  • Natural Resources/Environmental Policy and Climate Change

Appropriate candidates are mid-career professionals in leadership positions who have the required experience/skills, commitment to public service, and potential for advancement in their professions. Prospective-fellows should have a minimum of five years professional experience and should be policy rather than research or technically oriented (the exception is NIDA-funded applicants who must also demonstrate a research orientation).

Not Eligible

Recent graduates (even if they have significant positions), university teachers or researchers with no management responsibilities (except in the fields of drug abuse prevention and TOEFL), individuals with less than five years of work experience, individuals with recent U.S. experience (more than 6 months within the last 5 years), individuals who have attended a graduate school in the U.S. for one academic year or more during the seven years prior to August 2013, individuals with dual U.S. citizenship or U.S. permanent resident status.

Basic Requirements

Croatian citizenship, permanent employment in Croatia, 5 years of professional experience, university degree - four years of full time study, English proficiency


NIDA-Funded Humphrey Fellowships (Drug Abuse)

The drug abuse component of the field of public health policy and management emphasizes drug abuse education, treatment, and prevention. Fellowships funded by the National Institute on Drug Abuse (NIDA) target more specialized candidates. Appropriate candidates for NIDA-funded Humphrey Fellowships include mid-level researchers, research managers and policy makers in universities, drug abuse prevention or treatment programs, health or social services industries or medical facilities. Candidates preferably should have a doctoral degree or equivalent in medicine, health, behavioral or social science. Professionals employed by social welfare, education or community-based organizations would be appropriate if they meet the general eligibility criteria. Law enforcement candidates are not eligible unless they have a public health focus on drug abuse epidemiology, education, treatment and prevention, and meet the requirements to follow a program based in a school of public health.

Nature of the Program

It is essential that candidates have a clear understanding of the professional development component of the program. If a candidate's intent is to pursue an advanced academic degree, or to attend a specific university, he/she cannot be nominated for the program. Candidates should also understand that Humphrey maintenance support may not enable them to maintain the standard of living they enjoy at home.

Applications must be submitted electronically by May 1, 2012.

Access on-line application here. On-line application will be available from April 1, 2012.

Additional Documents

Copy of "domovnica"; evidence of employment in Croatia (letter from employer confirming employment); copies of all university diplomas; curriculum vitae.

Additional documents should be sent by registered mail no later than May 1, 2012, to:

Following technical review, candidates will be invited for an interview in June. Finalists will be notified in July. Final selection results will be forwarded from Washington in March of 2013.

NIDA questions sheet: All candidates applying for fellowships in the field of drug abuse should fill out the NIDA form regardless of degree held, number of publications, or research experience. Candidates in other fields should NOT fill out the NIDA page.

English language testing (TOEFL TEST): All FINALISTS will be required to take the Test of English as a Foreign Language (TOEFL). Do not register for the test before you are notified of your status. If you have taken the test in the past 2 years please attach the score report in the on-line application. TOEFL (internet based) test is administered in Zagreb at the Institute for the Development of Education, Preradoviceva 33, www.iro.hr. Minimum required score is 80 IBT (Internet Based Test).


Selection for the Humphrey program is very competitive. Review panels give special consideration to the candidates who meet all program requirements including demonstrated leadership ability/ potential, a commitment to public service, and a well-developed program plan.

Program Components

A. Academic placement in a non-degree program: The Humphrey program is not designed to lead to a degree. Rather, fellows pursue tailored study programs at participating host institutions. Candidates can NOT request a particular university for placement. For 2010-11, 15 campuses have been selected through a competitive process to host fellows in field of study groups. A university is chosen based on the richness of its institutional resource base and level of support and guidance it offers to the participants. Each campus has a designated faculty coordinator for academic and administrative support. Faculty advisers also assist fellows in balancing academic and professional experience.

B. Professional development: this is one of the strongest features of the program. Each fellow's professional plan may include professional visits, conferences, and a professional affiliation (work placement) of at least six weeks. Early in the academic year, each fellow develops, with assistance from the Institute of International Education (IIE), the campus - coordinator, and faculty advisers, a plan for professional activities carefully geared to the fellow's need for relevant, practical professional experiences.

Financial Provisions and Dependents

The Humphrey Fellowship provides tuition and university fees, a monthly maintenance allowance, a book and supplies allowance, a computer subsidy, round-trip international travel to the host institution (and to the Fellow's English-language training program when applicable) and domestic travel to Washington, D.C. for a special seminar. Supplementary funds are available for professional activities such as field trips or attendance at conferences. Humphrey Fellowships are not renewable.

Humphrey Fellows should plan to bring with them some personal funds to cover incidental expenses not covered in the grant. Humphrey Fellowships do not include funds for dependents (family members). Humphrey Fellows are responsible for providing travel, insurance, and financial support for any dependents accompanying them to the United States. Please note that English and orientation centers cannot accommodate dependents. Therefore, dependents should not arrive in the United States until the Fellows are settled in their academic year programs and have secured housing (at least 30 days after the Fellow's arrival).

The Humphrey Fellowship program is administered by the Institute of International Education - www.iie.org
