One of the 'feathers in the cap' of the Humphrey Institute of Public Affairs is the International Fellows Program. Each year the program hosts 16-20 mid-career professionals from Asia, Africa, Latin American and the former Soviet States as they work on academic and professional development programs here from August to June. This dynamic group includes heads of NGOs, attorneys working on human rights issues, specialists in environmental protection, educators, law enforcement professionals, and many others.
