Become a Fellow in our German delegation and learn about social justice challenges and opportunities in Atlanta, Berlin, Copenhagen, Sarajevo, or Warsaw.
We no longer accept applications for the summer of 2020.
As a part of the year-long Fellowship, our Fellows first participate in an intensive four-week educational program providing a country and context-specific curriculum that examines historical and contemporary challenges to human rights, pluralism and equality. After the four weeks, they embark on developing civil society initiatives in their own communities.
Our Fellowship Program Dates in 2020
Fellowships in Europe: June 3 – July 1, 2020
John Lewis Fellowship Program in Atlanta: June 23 – July 21, 2020
The participation in our Fellowship programs is free of charge. Please review our Financial Questions section to learn what is covered and included in the Fellowship.
Our programs offer an opportunity to learn about the different nationally-relevant themes illuminated by diverse experts, site visits, individual presentations by the Fellows, and group discussions.
Applicants are strongly encouraged to look closely at the programs of previous years to get a sense of the daily rhythms and foci of the programs. While these programs are not designed to develop advocacy skills, it is our experience that the educational experience will provide the intellectual foundation through which future civic engagement can grow.
