Dear Friends:

Help us find the next generation of Humanity in Action Fellows! Applications for our programs in Europe and the United States are now open. 

The deadline to apply to these programs is January 7, 2016.



The European Programs

In 2016, the Humanity in Action Fellowship programs will take place in Amsterdam, Berlin, Copenhagen, Paris and Warsaw. Intensive and demanding, the Humanity in Action Fellowship brings together international groups of college students and recent graduates to explore national histories of injustice and resistance—including antisemitism, Islamophobia and racism—as they affect different minority groups today.

The American Program

Last year, Humanity in Action and The National Center for Civil and Human Rights, Inc., launched the John Lewis Fellowship in Atlanta, Georgia. The John Lewis Fellowship honors U.S. Representative John Lewis, an icon of the Civil Rights Movement. The program explores the history of the Civil Rights Movement, diversity and minority rights in the United States, with a particular focus on Atlanta. Key areas of inquiry include race and racism, immigration, national identity, Native American issues and the relationship between civil rights and human rights. The Fellowship will also discuss contemporary racial and diversity issues.

Humanity in Action is proud to partner with The National Center for Civil and Human Rights, Inc., to develop this important program and is deeply grateful to the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation for its generous support provided through The Center.

Humanity in Action's Mission and Network

Humanity in Action Fellowship programs seek to educate, connect and inspire the world's future leaders to be responsible citizens in the broadest range of fields – government and diplomacy, journalism, entrepreneurship and trade, grassroots activism, academia and culture and the arts. Students of all backgrounds and identities are strongly encouraged to apply.

Upon successful completion of these programs, Fellows will join the global network of over 1,500 Humanity in Action Senior Fellows. As Senior Fellows, they are eligible for advanced professional and educational opportunities, such as fellowships in the United States Congress and the European Parliament and study trips to Detroit, Berlin, Athens and elsewhere.
