The Hubert H. Humphrey Fellowship Program, a Fulbright Exchange, is sponsored by the U.S. Department of State’s Bureau of Educational and Cultural Affairs and administered through a cooperative agreement with the Institute of International Education, Inc. (“IIE”). Each year, IIE invites qualified universities and organizations to submit a proposal to host a Humphrey Fellowship Program Enhancement Workshop. The award results in a Cost-Reimbursable Contract.
During the Humphrey Fellowship Program, mid-career Fellows from over 90 countries may choose to participate in thematic or skill-building Enhancement Workshops. Thematic workshops have a broad focus on a critical global issue; these workshops expand not only the Fellows’ expertise around the chosen topic, but help develop their leadership skills in content-rich exercises and discussions. Skill-building workshops equip Fellows with practical skills essential for success in the 21st century workplace, positioning them to influence decision-making and policy development within their professional fields in their countries.
Potential topics might include:
·       food security
·       emergency management
·       climate change, natural resources management and sustainability
·       diversity, equity, inclusion and access in management and policymaking
·       data literacy
·       grant writing
·       people management/teambuilding
·       ArcGIS practical training
The recipient organizations will design a 3-5 day in-person workshop OR design a virtual 4-6 week workshop for approximately 30-40 Humphrey Fellows in either February, March or April 2023. The proposed workshop should be thematically designed around one topic or set of professional skills.
Offerors may propose budgets up to $20,000.00 for a virtual workshop or up to $30,000.00 for an in-person workshop.
Once released, the RFP will be publicly available at IIE encourages proposals from institutions and organizations that introduce Humphrey Fellows to the full range of American diversity, including institutions and organizations working with underserved, rural and minority populations.
