Humanity in Action to hold fellowship information session on Tuesday, December 10

Friday, December 6, 2013

Students interested in Humanity in Action Fellowships have the opportunity to speak with Humanity in Action Senior Fellow Janine White at an information session on Tuesday, December 1 from 1-2 p.m. in Kent Hall, Rm. 624.

The Humanity in Action Fellowship brings together international groups of college students and recent graduates on month-long summer programs in Amsterdam, Berlin, Copenhagen, Lyon or Warsaw to explore national histories of discrimination and resistance, as well as current day examples of issues affecting different minority groups.  The programs are interdisciplinary and feature 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.) 

Fellowship programs begin in Washington, DC at the Council on Foreign Relations, followed by a month in either Amsterdam, Berlin, Copenhagen, Lyon or Warsaw. Applicants must be currently enrolled sophomores, juniors, seniors or recent graduates of accredited four-year colleges or universities in the United States. Applicants should be mature, proactive, self-reliant and comfortable with intensive group activity and interaction. 

Humanity in Action is now accepting applications for their 2014 Fellowship Programs in Europe, which will take place from May 26 to June 30, 2014.

Applications are due on January 9, 2014.
