Applications are Open for the 2013 Humanity in Action Fellowship Programs
Today is Human Rights Day— and it is also exactly one month from our application deadline.
Humanity in Action is accepting applications for our 2013 Fellowship Programs in Europe, which will take place from May 27 to June 30, 2013.
Humanity in Action invites applications from university students and recent graduates who are intellectually gifted, mature, independent and passionate about human rights. Current sophomores, juniors, and seniors and graduates from the undergraduate classes of 2011 and 2012 are eligible to apply.
The Humanity in Action Fellowship brings together international groups of students to study human rights and to produce original research exploring how and why individuals and societies resist intolerance and stand up for democratic values. The programs will begin in Washington, DC at the Council on Foreign Relations. Fellows will then participate in month-long programs in Amsterdam, Berlin, Copenhagen, Lyon or Warsaw. Applications are due on January 10, 2013.
Intensive and demanding, the Humanity in Action Fellowship features daily lectures and discussions with renowned academics, journalists, politicians and activists, as well as site visits to government agencies, non-profit organizations, museums and memorials. Participation requires a great deal of intellectual curiosity and stamina, as well as the ability to work effectively in international teams.
After the program, participants join the global alumni network of Humanity in Action Senior Fellows and can take advantage of special professional fellowship opportunities, such as internship programs in the U.S. Congress and European Parliament.
Please share this email widely with other students and recent graduates whom you think would benefit from this opportunity. Students of all academic disciplines, interests and backgrounds are encouraged to apply.
