Humanity in Action is now accepting applications for its 2014 Fellowship Programs in Europe.
Humanity in Action invites applications from talented college students and recent graduates who are intellectually gifted, mature, independent and passionate about social justice and human rights. Current sophomores, juniors, seniors and graduates from the undergraduate classes of 2012 and 2013 are eligible to apply.
For the past 15 years, the Humanity in Action Fellowship has brought together international groups of students and young professionals to study minority rights and to produce research exploring how and why individuals and societies resist intolerance and stand up for democratic values. The 2014 programs will begin in Washington, DC at the Council on Foreign Relations and subsequently take place for four weeks in Amsterdam, Berlin, Copenhagen, Paris and Warsaw.
Applications are due on January 9, 2014.
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.
We hope you will share this email widely with students and recent graduates whom you think would benefit from this opportunity. Students of all academic disciplines, interests and backgrounds are encouraged to apply.
If you have any further questions, please do not hesitate to contact our staff at firstname.lastname@example.org.
