Application Deadline:

Requirements:

UG and Graduating students interested in Human rights

Purpose:

Intensive and demanding, the Humanity in Action Fellowship brings together international groups of college students and recent graduates to explore national histories of discrimination and resistance--including the political foundations of racial hierarchies, Antisemitism, Islamophobia and colonial domination--as they affect different minority groups today. The Fellowship seeks to educate, connect and inspire the world's future leaders in the fields of human rights and social justice.

Humanity in Action covers the costs of participation and accommodation during the fellowship programs. However, all Fellows will be responsible for financing the cost of round-trip airfare to their program city. Humanity in Action will cover this cost for Fellows with documented need.
