Congratulations to the three fellows who were named as the 2018-2019 Hubert H. Humphrey grantees!
They will be going to the United States for 10 months to pursue non-degree academic study and related professional experiences.
Humphrey Fellows are selected based on their potential for leadership and their commitment to public service in either the public or the private sector. The Humphrey Program fosters a mutual exchange of knowledge and understanding about issues of common concern in the United States and the Fellows’ home countries. The Program offers Fellows valuable opportunities for leadership development and professional engagement with Americans and their counterparts from many nations. More than 5,600 men and women have been honored as Humphrey Fellows since the program began in 1978. Approximately 200 Fellowships are awarded annually. Thirteen major universities in the United States host Humphrey Fellows. These host universities are chosen for their excellence in the Program’s designated fields of study and for the resources and support they offer Humphrey Fellows.
- Avelino D. Tolentino III (Assistant Secretary, Housing and Urban Development Coordinating Council), Urban and Regional Planning – Massachusetts Institute of Technology
- Vikki Carr D. De Los Reyes (Training and Surveillance Officer, Department of Health), Public Health Policy and Management – Emory University
