Costs

For Greek participants, Humanity in Action covers:

  • the travel costs to and from the program city;
  • the costs of participation and accommodation during the Fellowship programs;
  • the costs of many meals and public transport during programming times of the Fellowships;
  • additional support if needed.

However, Fellows should plan to bring spending money for additional food and social activities during the Fellowship programs. 

Amsterdam Fellowship Program: Humanity in Action arranges for host family stays for Fellows from abroad and provides lunch, snacks and coffee / tea during program days and a closing dinner. Fellows in the Amsterdam program should plan on bringing 500 Euro for off-program food and off-program social activities. Additional stipends will be available for Greek participants if needed.
