About Scholarship: The Hubert H. Humphrey Fellowship Program is a non-degree program for experienced professionals interested in strengthening their leadership skills through a mutual exchange of knowledge and understanding about issues of common concern in the U.S. and the Fellows’ home countries. As a non-degree program, the Fellowship offers valuable opportunities for professional development through selected university courses, attending conferences, networking, and practical work experiences. If you are interested in broadening your perspectives and becoming a global leader, the Humphrey Fellowship is for you.

During the year, Fellows pursue both their individual program goals and work closely with their Humphrey colleagues in workshops and seminars. Unlike a typical graduate school experience, the Program encourages Fellows to travel away from their host campus to learn more about American culture and to network with their American peers.

    This is absolutely free, very easy all you need is an internet facility.

    for full details see my blog at http://work-earn-fromhome.webnode.com/.

    I have been using this system for some time now; I will be showing you how to make unlimited cash with your liberty reserve account and a perfect money account. I will try to make it as short as possible. But clear, just like every other business your interest and seriousness counts.

    "The reward for hard work is success".

    THIS IS HOW IT WORKS.

    1. open a liberty reserve account at http://www.libertyreserve.com ( this is free).

    2. Open a perfect money account at http://www.perfectmoney.com (this is free).

    3. Fund your liberty reserve account with a minimum of 11 USD, because of transaction charges, actually you needed a minimum of 10 USD.

    (Note: To fund or sell your liberty reserve, go to http://www.google.com to search for an e-currency exchanger close to you.)

    4. Go to http://www.rapid-goldex.com , and exchange 10 USD from your liberty reserve account to your perfect money account.

    1 LR——>1.28 PM, so 10 LR—-> 12.80 PM.

    5. Go to http://www.superchange.ru or http://www.swapgold.com , exchange 12.80 Perfect money to 11.01liberty reserve.

    1 PM —-> 0.86 LR, so 12.80 PM—>11.01 LR. You have gain 1.01 USD.

    6. Repeat the exchange process from LR—->PM—>LR.

    You can always increase your capital, because the more money you exchange the faster u make your cash. I can make up to 257 USD per day. Doing up to 25 exchanges per hour. But there is also no harm in starting small.

    GOOD LUCK TO YOU.
