An intensive and demanding summer program, 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 Fellowship seeks to educate, connect and inspire the world's future leaders in the fields of human rights and social justice.

Each Fellowship program is highly interdisciplinary and features lectures and discussions with renowned academics, journalists, politicians and activists, as well as site visits to government agencies, non-profit and community organizations, museums and memorials. The programs seek to highlight different models of action to remedy injustice. They also aim to instill a responsibility among Fellows to recognize and address the need to protect minorities and promote human rights--in their own communities and around the world.

Applicants to the Humanity in Action Fellowship must be currently enrolled undergraduate students (sophomores, juniors and seniors) or recent graduates. For the 2015 Fellowship, we define recent graduates as individuals from the undergraduate classes of 2013 and 2014 at accredited, four-year undergraduate colleges or universities in the United States. Applicants of minority backgrounds are strongly encouraged to apply.
