Boston University has been honored to be the only university to continuously serve as a host campus since the Program’s inception in 1978, and so far has hosted nearly 500 Fellows from over 120 countries. The Humphrey Fellowship Program has in no small part contributed to BU’s development into one of the world’s most globally connected private universities. Today, more than 7,000 international students live and study at BU. Furthermore, BU is involved in over 400 activities in more than ninety countries and Antarctica. This combination of diversity and experience, contained within a close-knit residential community in the heart of one of America’s greatest cities, provides Humphrey Fellows an environment into which they can quickly integrate themselves and make early progress toward achieving their ambitious goals.

Under the guidance of program coordinators and faculty advisors, Fellows pursue individualized programs of graduate-level coursework, independent research, special seminars and colloquia, and six-week, professional internships related to their respective fields of specialization in government agencies, academic institutions, private organizations, and corporations.
