Overview

 

The Humanity in Action Fellowship programs will take place in Amsterdam, Atlanta, Berlin, Copenhagen, Paris and Warsaw in 2016. The 2016 European program dates for participants from the United States are May 24 through June 26, 2016. The American program, the John Lewis Fellowship, follows a different schedule.

Details Description:

 

Intensive and demanding, the Humanity in Action Fellowship brings together international groups of college students and recent graduates to explore national histories of discrimination and resistance—including anti-Semitism, Islamophobia and racism—as they affect different minority groups today. The Fellowship seeks to educate, connect and inspire the world’s future leaders in the fields of human rights and social justice.


Description of Ideal Candidate:

 

Applicants to the Humanity in Action Fellowship must be currently enrolled undergraduate students (sophomores, juniors and seniors) or recent graduates. For the 2016 Fellowship, we define recent graduates as individuals from the undergraduate classes of 2014 and 2015 at accredited, four-year undergraduate colleges or universities in the United States. Applicants of minority backgrounds are strongly encouraged to apply.

If you are an American citizen studying at a foreign university, you are eligible to apply to the Humanity in Action Fellowship through the United States. If you are an American student studying at a university in Denmark, France, Germany, the Netherlands or Poland, you may be eligible to apply through the Humanity in Action offices in those countries. Please contact those offices directly to confirm your eligibility.

If you are a non-US citizen studying at a university in the United States, you are eligible to apply to the Humanity in Action Fellowship through the US office.


The Humanity in Action Fellowships are free of charge. 

Additionally, Humanity in Action  covers the costs of participation, accommodation (for those fellows residing outside the fellowship area), public transportation. Although Humanity in Action provides a  modest meal stipend, fellows should also bring spending money for food and social activities during the program.
