Application Process Now Open for Three Humanity in Action Programs

Humanity in Action opened the application process for three programs in Berlin, Brussels and Washington, DC last week.

“Berlin Study Trip: Populism, Nationalism and Extremist Movements in Europe” will bring together Humanity in Action Fellows and Senior Fellows and university students from Greece for a weeklong program in October 2014. Participants will explore emerging nationalist attitudes in the continent through a mix of lectures, site visits and interactive discussion. Applications for this program are due August 24, 2014. See this page of Humanity in Action’s website to learn more. This pilot project is generously supported by the Stavros Niarchos Foundation.

The 2015 Lantos-Humanity in Action Fellowship also began accepting applications last week. This fellowship, formed in 2001, places individuals into the office of a United States Representative or Congressional Committee in Washington, DC. Participants spend four days per week working in the office and one day attending a curated selection of lectures and seminars. This program runs for four months in 2015. It is named after Tom Lantos – a former Congressman, Holocaust survivor and human rights champion – and his wife Annette. The program is sponsored by the Lantos Foundation for Human Rights and Justice. You can learn more about this fellowship here.

Lastly, Humanity in Action has also opened the application process for the 2015 Pat Cox-Humanity in Action Fellowship. Fellows of this program work in the office of a Member of the European Parliament or a NGO in Brussels for three months. Like the Lantos-Humanity in Action Fellowship, Fellows spend four days per week in the office and one day per week at site visits and seminars. This program is named after Pat Cox, the former President of the European Parliament. Click here to learn more about this fellowship.

Applications for both the Pat Cox-Humanity in Action Fellowship and the Lantos-Humanity in Action Fellowship are due September 2, 2014.

We look forward to working with the future Fellows and participants of these programs.
