Programs with Participants from Germany


Intensive and demanding, the Humanity in Action Fellowship brings together international groups of emerging human rights leaders to explore national histories of discrimination and resistance as well as examples of issues affecting different minority groups today. The objective of the Humanity in Action Fellowship programs is to facilitate a collective exploration of the social and political roots of discrimination as well as to provide a forum where potential solutions to some of today's most challenging pluralism issues can be considered and discussed. The programs are intended to instill a responsibility among Humanity in Action Fellows to recognize and address the need to protect minorities and uphold human rights, in their own communities, and beyond. Learn more about the programs here.


Students, recent graduates, and young professionals who are from or based in Germany. Applicants need to be open-minded, widely interested, willing to challenge their own assumptions and biases, take over societal responsibility, and be committed to human rights, pluralism, societal diversity, and active citizenship. Please check our Eligibility Criteria for more detailed information about eligibility criteria and the selection process.

Obligations and Opportunities

The Humanity in Action Fellowships last one month, but their impact on the lives of Fellows and their communities lasts for many more. Humanity in Action has an active alumni network and offers a range of educational, professional, and financial opportunities to its Senior Fellows.

Prior to the Fellowship, selected Fellows are required to engage with a selection of readings. During the Fellowship, full-time committment is expected from all the selected Fellows. After the Fellowship, our Fellows complete an Action Project in their own community or elsewhere. Please take a look at the Obligations and Opportunities section for more detailed information on what we ask for and what we offer.

Deadline to Apply

The deadline to apply for all the Humanity in Action Fellowships will be February 18, 2018! Applications will open in December, 2017.


The participation of Greek Fellows in Humanity in Action's programs internationally is generously supported by the Stavros Niarchos Foundation.
