Apply for the Humanity in Action Fellowships in Europe!


We invite applications from students and recent graduates of U.S. colleges and universities who are passionate about active citizenship, diversity and human rights. Current sophomores, juniors and seniors, as well as graduates from the undergraduate classes of 2016 and 2017 are eligible to apply. Applications for students and recent graduates from European universities will open in late fall.

The Humanity in Action Fellowship programs are fully-funded, with the exception of a small number of meals and the cost of airfare – which Fellows are responsible for financing. However, Humanity in Action provides full and partial stipends for all of those with documented need.

The deadline to apply is January 8, 2018 at 11:59pm PST. Click here for more details!

From BSOS Alum Luciana Debenedetti '11: 
"Humanity in Action affirmed my interest in studying and promoting human rights, and equipped me with a framework and contextual basis for doing so. The opportunity to spend one month in a new city with European and American students of diverse backgrounds and viewpoints was an unparalleled experience that allowed me to debate and explore contemporary political challenges inside and outside of the classroom. After the fellowship, I benefitted from a close-knit network of former fellows and events for continued engagement. I recommend the fellowship for intellectually curious students who are passionate about active citizenship."
