We no longer accept applications for the summer of 2020. Applications for summer of 2021 open coming winter.

As a part of the year-long Fellowship, Fellows first participate in an intensive four-week educational program. The program provides a country and context-specific curriculum that examines historical and contemporary challenges to human rights, democracy, and inclusivity. After the four weeks, the Fellows embark on developing civil society initiatives in their own communities: the Action project.

2020 Program Dates:

  • For the European programs (Amsterdam & Sarajevo): June 3 – July 1, 2020.
  • For the John Lewis Fellowship program (Atlanta, Georgia): June 23 – July 21, 2020.

Our programs offer an opportunity to learn about different pressing societal themes facilitated 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.
