2012-13 Humphrey Fellows are Pursuing Their Academic Year at Penn State

Penn State welcomes the 2012-13 Humphrey Fellows professionals as they begin their academic year.

UNIVERSITY PARK, Pa. – This academic year, 11 international professionals are participating in the Hubert H. Humphrey Fellowship Program at Penn State.

The Humphrey Program brings accomplished mid-career professionals from specific countries around the world to selected universities in the United States for public service, advanced study, professional training, and work-related experiences.

President Jimmy Carter established the program in 1978 in honor of the late Vice President Hubert H. Humphrey. Penn State has hosted Humphrey fellows each year since the program was established. The College of Education is the University’s administrative home of the program.

“The 2012-13 Humphrey fellows have been actively involved in a variety of opportunities at Penn State and in the community from the moment they arrived,” said Leila Bradaschia, director of Penn State’s Humphrey Program. “They are making connections with people who share their interests and who want to learn more about their backgrounds. We are excited about the knowledge and energy this year’s cohort brings to our campus.”
