USEFP also announced two competitive non-degree programs this quarter: the 2024 Hubert H. Humphrey Fellowship and the 2024 Foreign Language Teaching Assistant (FLTA) program.
The Humphrey Fellowship is a 10- to 12-month program that targets mid-level professionals who want to build on their knowledge base by enrolling in non-degree coursework and get some work experience in the USA. Applications are open for specific fields and the deadline to apply is April 18. Selected applicants are expected to share information about Pakistani life and culture with their American colleagues.
The FLTA program is for teachers of English at the college and university level, preferably those who are still early in their careers. During the nine-month grant period, participants are able to hone their English skills at a university in the United States, teach Urdu or Pashto to American students, enroll in non-degree coursework, and network with their host communities. The call for applications this year closed on March 8.
Both programs are fully funded and require selected applicants to come back to Pakistan upon completion.
