Become a Fellow in our German delegation and learn about social justice challenges and opportunities in Atlanta, Berlin, Copenhagen, Sarajevo, or Warsaw.

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.

  • Fellowships in Europe: June 3 – July 1, 2020
  • John Lewis Fellowship Program in Atlanta: June 23 – July 21, 2020


Our Call for Applications for candidates from Germany is now open. Submit your application by February 9, 2020.

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.
