Humanity in Action Fellowships Info Session, Wed 12/12/2012

Thursday, December 6, 2012

Humanity in Action Senior Fellows Janine White and Danielle Goonan will be speaking with interested students about the Humanity in Action Fellowships:

Humanity in Action Fellowships Information Session
Wednesday, December 12
6:30-7:30pm in Kent 624

 

Humanity in Action Fellowships bring together international groups of college students and recent graduates during the summer in several European cities, to explore national histories of discrimination and resistance, as well as examples of issues affecting different minority groups today.  Each program is interdisciplinary and features daily lectures and discussions with renowned academics, journalists, politicians, and activists, as well as site visits to government agencies, non-profit and community organizations, museums, and memorials.

Humanity in Action covers the costs of participation in the five-week program as well as accommodation. (Fellows are responsible for airfare to and from their program site. Humanity in Action will cover this expense for fellows with documented need.)  The programs will begin in Washington, DC at the Council on Foreign Relations. Fellows will then participate in month-long programs in Amsterdam, Berlin, Copenhagen, Lyon or Warsaw. Applicants must be currently enrolled sophomores, juniors, or seniors (or recent graduates) at accredited four-year colleges or universities in the United States. Applicants should be mature, proactive, self-reliant, and comfortable in intensive group activity and interaction. 

Humanity in Action is now accepting applications for their 2013 Fellowship Programs in Europe, which will take place from May 27 to June 30, 2013.

Applications are due on January 10, 2013.
