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. See for more information!

Fellowship Dates:

  • European Fellowship Programs (Amsterdam, Berlin, Copenhagen, Sarajevo, and Warsaw): June 3 – July 1, 2020, followed by an Action Project implementation;
  • John Lewis Fellowship Program (Atlanta, Georgia): June 23 – July 21, 2020, followed an Action Project implementation.


Current undergraduate and graduate university and college students, as well as recent graduates (within last two years), who are passionate about active citizenship, diversity and human rights are invited to apply.  


Programing , including accommodations, is fully-funded. Participants are asked to cover their round-trip travel to the program location as well as some meals and spending money for activities outside of programing. If this is not possible, Humanity in Action may provide either full or partial travel and living stipends for all those with documented need.
