U.S. Department of State - Professional Fellows Program

The Professional Fellows Division in the Office of Citizen Exchanges at the U.S. Department of State's Bureau of Educational Affairs (ECA) invites proposal submissions for the Professional Fellows Program (PFP) in the regions of Africa (AF), East Asia and the Pacific (EAP), Europe and Eurasia (EUR), the Middle East and North Africa (NEA), South and Central Asia (SCA), and the Western Hemisphere (WHA). The Professional Fellows Program is a two-way, global exchange program designed to promote mutual understanding, enhance leadership and professional skills, and build lasting and sustainable partnerships between mid-level emerging leaders from foreign countries and the United States. The defining element of the program for foreign participants is a substantive five- to six-week fellowship placement in a U.S. workplace complemented by a collaborative project in their home country.

Selection criteria for foreign fellows for the Professional Fellows Program must include the below:
  • emerging leaders in either government, civil society, or the private sector who have demonstrated expertise pertaining to the respective theme of each proposal;
  • mid-level professionals in the approximate age range of 25 to 40 years old who, at a minimum, have two or more years of professional work experience;
  • demonstrated proficiency in both written and oral English that qualifies him or her to have “working-level knowledge of English” that has been verified by each award recipient;
  • self-directed and able to work effectively in a cross-cultural setting; and
  • genuinely interested in developing an individual project of their own selection in their home workplace or community.
