The Fellowship offers valuable opportunities for professional development through selected university courses (duration: 9 months), conference attendance, networking, and mandatory practical work experiences (duration: 3 months). During the year, Fellows pursue both their individual program goals and work closely with their Humphrey colleagues in workshops and seminars.
