Costs

 

The Program

What costs does Humanity in Action cover during the program?

Humanity in Action covers the costs of participation, accommodation, many meals and travel during the program. However, Fellows should plan to bring spending money for additional food and social activities during the Fellowship programs. Humanity in Action does not discriminate based on financial need and will assist Fellows with documented need in meeting financial demands. 

Travel costs

Humanity in Action expects Fellows to travel to and from the Fellowship location at their own expense. However, we are mindful that traveling to and from the Humanity in Action Fellowship program can involve high or low costs and that Fellows are coming from a wide range of countries with income and purchasing power disparity. In Europe, Humanity in Action has set aside travel budgets for participants from certain countries (for example Ukraine, Bosnia and Herzegovina, and Greece). Regardless of the country of origin, Humanity in Action can provide travel stipends to Fellows with documented finacial need.

Accommodation, food and additional spending money

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

Humanity in Action The Netherlands provides lunch, snacks and coffee / tea during program days, as well as a celebratory dinner. Fellows in the Amsterdam program should plan on bringing 500 Euro for off-program food and off-program social activities.

Important: Humanity in Action encourages applicants who do not see themselves in a position to cover these extra costs to apply for the program nonetheless.

In the case of Ukrainian Fellows the office in charge is the Polish office in Warsaw. In the case of Greek Fellows, the Berlin office is in the lead.
