“Coming from the global studies and human rights legal background, this experience was not just another step on the way, but rather an entire harbor of new ideas and possibilities. Coming together from the United States, Ukraine, Germany, and Poland, with our energized attitudes and strive to make the difference, I can state immodestly that we have done something outstanding (…) I have not seen such brave idea for action before…” - Łukasz, law student, Warsaw Fellow

Intensive and demanding, the Humanity in Action Fellowship brings together international groups of emerging human rights leaders to explore national histories of discrimination and resistance as well as examples of issues affecting different minority groups today. The objective of the Humanity in Action Fellowship programs is to facilitate a collective exploration of the social and political roots of discrimination, as well as to provide a forum where potential solutions to some of today's most challenging issues can be considered and discussed. The programs are also intended to instill a responsibility among Humanity in Action Fellows to recognize and address the need to protect minorities and promote human rights—in their own communities and around the world. Learn more about the programs here.
Students, recent graduates and young professionals who are from or currently based in Poland. Applicants need to be open-minded, widely interested, willing to take over societal responsibility and committed to promoting human rights, pluralism, diversity and active citizenship. Please check the Eligibility Criteria for more detailed information about our eligibility criteria and selection process.
Obligations and Opportunities
The Humanity in Action Fellowships last one month, but their impact on the lives of Fellows and their communities lasts for many more. Humanity in Action has a very active alumni network and offers a range of educational, professional, and financial opportunities to its Senior Fellows.
Prior to the Fellowship, selected Fellows are required to engage with a selection of readings. During the Fellowship, full-time committment is expected from all the selected Fellows. After the Fellowship, our Fellows complete an Action Project in their own community or elsewhere. Please take a look at the Obligations and Opportunities section for more detailed information on what we ask for and what we offer.
The Humanity in Action Fellowships in Bosnia and Herzegovina, Poland, Germany and in the United States are free of charge. For more details, please go here.
