Deadline: January 31, 2014
Humanity in Action seeks applications from graduate students from Europe and the United States for a new fellowship program that will focus on the intersection of foreign affairs and diversity. The Diplomacy and Diversity Fellowship is a new transatlantic Humanity in Action program. The Fellowship is an educational program for 24 American and European graduate students about the changing international dynamics of diplomacy and diversity.
In Washington, DC and Paris, the Fellows will explore how American and European governments and societies are responding to a wide range of international and national diversity issues. The program’s guiding mission is to increase awareness of the importance of diversity in diplomacy and other international fields and to encourage and sustain the careers of professionals from minority backgrounds in foreign affairs. The 4-week program will take place from May 17 to June 14, 2014.
Humanity in Action generously covers all costs of the program including participation, hotels, flights, local transportation and some food. Fellows will stay in double rooms in hotels in Washington, DC and Paris.
In addition, each Fellow attending an institution of higher education in the United States will receive an educational supplement of $2,000.
