Humanity in Action Fellowships
The European Programs
In 2016, the Humanity in Action Fellowship programs will take place in Amsterdam, Berlin, Copenhagen, Paris and Warsaw.
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 anti-Semitism, Islamophobia and racism—as they affect different minority groups today.
The American Program
Last year, Humanity in Action and The National Center for Civil and Human Rights, Inc., launched the John Lewis Fellowship in Atlanta, Georgia. The John Lewis Fellowship honors U.S. Representative John Lewis, an icon of the Civil Rights Movement. The program explores the history of the Civil Rights Movement, diversity and minority rights in the United States, with a particular focus on Atlanta. Key areas of inquiry include race and racism, immigration, national identity, Native American issues and the relationship between civil rights and human rights. The Fellowship will also discuss contemporary racial and diversity issues.
Program Details: Humanity in Action covers the costs of participation and accommodation during the fellowship programs. However, all Fellows of the European Programs will be responsible for financing the cost of round-trip airfare from the United States to their program city. Also, all fellows of the American Program will be responsible for financing the cost of round-trip airfare to and from Atlanta, Georgia. Humanity in Action will cover this cost for Fellows with documented need.
Eligibility: Applicants to Humanity in Action Fellowships must be currently enrolled undergraduate students (sophomores, juniors and seniors) or recent graduates. Applicants of minority backgrounds are strongly encouraged to apply. Non-U.S. citizens studying at a university in the United States are eligible to apply to the Humanity in Action Fellowship through the U.S. office.
More information and instructions on how to apply is available at: http://www.humanityinaction.org/pages/91-call-for-applications
Applications will be due January 7, 2016. Candidates can be considered for BOTH the European and the American Programs.

FELLOWSHIP: Nippon Foundation Fellows Program for Japanese language study
Application Deadline: December 11, 2015
The Inter-University Center for Japanese Language Studies (IUC), administered by Stanford University, is pleased to announce a call for applications to the Nippon Foundation Fellows Program at the IUC for the academic year 2016-17. This program aims to provide the most promising students with the deep linguistic and cultural knowledge needed to become leaders in their fields, and to foster strong collegial bonds and intellectual exchange among them and with their IUC senpai.
Fellows will receive a full tuition scholarship plus a modest living stipend to attend the 10-month immersion program in advanced Japanese at the IUC in Yokohama from September 2016 to June 2017.
Over the last half century the IUC has trained more than 2,000 students. Alumni of the school have gone on to teach about Japan at more than 225 universities around the world, and many IUC graduates have distinguished themselves in non-academic careers in which knowledge about Japan has been vital.
Nippon Foundation Fellows participate fully in the program of instruction at the IUC, and in addition they:
Meet regularly with each other and the IUC Resident Director to discuss their research interests and experiences in Japan
Invite two IUC alumni to offer a lecture in Japanese in Tokyo
Deliver a presentation in Japanese at a Nippon Foundation Fellows conference open to the public
Eligibility: Ph.D. students in all fields of Japanese studies currently enrolled in universities from North America, Europe, Australia, or New Zealand; MA, MS, MBA, & JD students with Japan-focused career goals in academia, business, diplomacy/government service, journalism, translation, and law currently enrolled in or recently graduated from a North American university. Applicants must pass the IUC proficiency exam.
Application Deadline: December 11, 2015
Complete details and applications are available online.
