Embassies around the world are now accepting applications for the 2013–2014 NIDA Hubert H. Humphrey Drug Abuse Research Fellowship, which supports a 10-month training program for midcareer drug abuse professionals from eligible countries. The NIDA International Program partners with the U.S. State Department to support fellows who participate in a combination of academic courses at Virginia Commonwealth, Johns Hopkins, Emory, or Tulane universities, and a professional affiliation with an Institute grantee.

Drug abuse is a priority topic for the State Department, and research training remains central to the NIDA International Program mission. All of these Hubert H. Humphrey Fellowship host universities have more space available than they have qualified applicants. Current and former NIDA Hubert H. Humphrey Fellows can help by encouraging appropriate candidates to apply and sharing information about this opportunity with relevant organizations in their home countries.

To learn more, visit the NIDA International Program's page on the NIDA Hubert H. Humphrey Drug Abuse Research Fellowship. To apply, contact the U.S. embassy or Fulbright Commission in your home country, or visit the Hubert H. Humphrey Fellowship Program website for more information. Be sure to ask for the substance abuse application package.

The NIDA International Program is offering to help candidates prepare competitive applications, a service that may be especially helpful for those whose applications have previously been declined. Detailed information about the service and contact information are available in the Preparing a Competitive Application Information Flyer.
