Humphrey Fellowship Program Professional Development Grant Application

The goal of the Professional Development Grant (PD Grant) is to strengthen alumni professional development by providing funding to attend a conference, workshop or other professional activity that continues to build upon the Humphrey Fellowship experience and benefits their home community.

The grant funds professional activities rather than research-based endeavors. Please include a detailed explanation of how this grant would offer concrete benefits to you and/or your home community. PD: Grants can be used for an activity anywhere in the world.

Humphrey Fellowship alumni are eligible to apply for a Professional Development Grant three years after their completion of the Humphrey Fellowship Program. Applicants must be residing and/or working in their home countries or regions. This is a competitive application process; only the most substantial applications can be selected for funding. Successful applications demonstrate clear project objectives related to the issue or challenge addressed, include a plan for impact, demonstrate feasibility, and focus on sustainable results.   

The maximum award is $2,500 USD with a required cost share of at least 25% of the total activity cost. Applicants must select a professional development activity occurring between April 1, 2024 and December 31, 2024 to be eligible.
