Apply from the USA

Become a Fellow in our US delegation and learn about social justice challenges and opportunities in the United States, Copenhagen, Sarajevo, or Warsaw.

As a part of the year-long Fellowship, our Fellows first participate in an intensive three-week educational program providing a country and context-specific curriculum that examines historical and contemporary challenges to human rights, pluralism and equality. After the three weeks, they embark on developing civil society initiatives in their own communities.

Applications for our 2022 Fellowship are now closed. To be notified when the application for the Humanity in Action 2023 Fellowship programs is available, sign up here.

2018 Fellows in the Detroit

Our programs offer an opportunity to learn about the different nationally-relevant themes illuminated by diverse experts, site visits, and 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.

Programs Accepting Applicants from the US:

2022 Program Dates:

  • For the European programs (Copenhagen, Sarajevo, and Warsaw): June 6 – 30, 2022. 
  • For the US program (Mapping Inequities): June 1 – 17, 2022.

Please note, the Sarajevo and US programs are virtual. The Copenhagen and Warsaw programs are scheduled to take place in-person but this is subject to change based on health and safety, and travel restrictions. All Fellows, regardless of program, will join virtual International Programming on June 6, 7, and 8, 2022.

After the summer on-site or virtual programs, all Fellows participate in a series of mandatory virtual sessions, known collectively as Action Labs. These sessions equip Fellows with skills to implement their respective Action Projects.

Humanity in Action integrated the intellectual with the experiential, the analytical with the creative, and did so in a context that was challenging, critical, intensely open-minded and provoked constant reflection on a range of human rights issues.”
