Humanity in Action Fellowship is now open!

The Humanity in Action Fellowship explores issues of democracy, pluralism, human rights, and social justice. Each program is tailored to its location. Fellows are challenged to understand their host city’s unique history of injustice, its present struggles to encompass groups with minoritized cultures and identities, and the future of its democratic values.

For four weeks, Fellows engage with local experts and community members, visit museums and historical sites, and engage in constant discourse with one another and program leaders. As a requirement of participation, Fellows are obligated to conduct a hands-on outreach initiative, an Action Project, in their own communities within 11 months after this program.

Sophomores, Juniors, Seniors and Graduate Students are encouraged to apply. There is no specific degree requirements for this fellowship, but interests in human rights, cross-cultural exchange, historical and cultural research, politics, and social justice are all important ideals to this fellowship.

Due to the COVID Pandemic, there are virtual and in-person opportunities for this scholarship.

The application is now live and available at: https://www.humanityinaction.org/fellowship/

Applications due Sunday, February 14, 2021
