Applications are open for the 2016 Humanity in Action Fellowship. Humanity in Action is an international non-profit organization dedicated to equipping young people with the tools and skills necessary to protect the rights and freedoms of minorities. Humanity in Action develops international educational programs for university students and young professionals.

The Humanity in Action Fellowship brings together international groups of Fellows to study minority rights and produce original research exploring how and why individuals and societies, past and present, have resisted intolerance and protected democratic values. Separate programs take place for five weeks every summer in Amsterdam, Atlanta, Berlin, Copenhagen, Paris, and Warsaw.

Fellowship Details

Each program is highly 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. The programs seek to highlight different models of action to remedy injustice.
