Humanity in Action Fellowship

The objective of the Humanity in Action Fellowship is to facilitate a collective exploration of the social and political roots of discrimination, as well as to create a forum where potential solutions can be considered and discussed.

There are programs in Europe, in Denmark, France, German, the Netherlands, and Poland and one in the U.S.

The programs in Europe explore Europe’s unique history during the Second World War and the Holocaust along with present-day tensions related to minority groups in the continent. Key areas of inquiry include national identity, immigration, xenophobia, Islamophobia, anti-Semitism, racism, political extremism and discrimination of Roma -- all seen through the specific lens of each of the five countries.

The John Lewis Fellowship explores America’s unique history of diversity, immigration and civil rights along with present-day tensions related to minorities across the country. Key areas of inquiry include race and racism, immigration, national identity, Native American issues and the relationship between civil rights and human rights.

Humanity in Action covers the costs of participation and accommodation during the fellowship programs. Humanity in Action will also cover the cost of airfare to Washington, DC to attend the orientation. However, all Fellows will be responsible for financing the cost of round-trip airfare from the United States to their program city. Humanity in Action will cover this cost for Fellows with documented need.

Although Humanity in Action provides a modest stipend for meals, Fellows should also plan to bring spending money of approximately $750 for food and social activities during the fellowship program.

For the John Lewis program, Fellows will be responsible for financing the cost of round-trip airfare to and from Atlanta.
