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, democracy and inclusivity. After the four weeks, they embark on developing civil society initiatives in their own communities.

Our programs offer an opportunity to learn about different pressing societal themes illuminated by diverse workshops, site visits, lectures, and group discussions.

Applicants are strongly encouraged to look closely at the programs of previous years to get a sense of the daily rhythm. It is our experience that this educational experience will provide the intellectual foundation through which future civic engagement can grow.

Every year, new Humanity in Action Fellows come together in six cities across Europe and the United States to study how and why people confront intolerance and protect democratic values.
