Applications Now Open for 2017 Humanity in Action Fellowships

Applications for the 2017 Humanity in Action Fellowships are now open for students and recent graduates from Greece! We hope that you will help us spread the word by sharing the Call for Applications widely with your students, colleagues, and contacts. The costs of participation in the Fellowships are fully covered.

Intensive and demanding, the Fellowships bring together international groups of students and recent graduates to explore national histories of discrimination and resistance — including the political foundations of racial hierarchies, Antisemitism, Islamophobia and colonial domination — as they affect different minority groups today. The Fellowship seeks to educate, connect and inspire future leaders in the fields of human rights and social justice.

Humanity in Action will select university students and recent graduates from Greece who are mature, proactive, self-reliant, and comfortable in intensive group activity and interaction. Humanity in Action seeks candidates who are eager to stretch their understanding of the programs' issues beyond their own national contexts and specific fields of study. Proficiency in English is required. All majors and academic disciplines are encouraged to apply.

The deadline to apply is January 29, 2017.


Humanity in Action's Mission and Network

Humanity in Action Fellowship programs seek to educate, connect and inspire emerging and established human rights leaders active in the broadest range of fields – government and diplomacy, journalism, entrepreneurship and trade, grassroots activism, academia, culture, and the arts.

Upon successful completion of these programs, Fellows complete an Action Project in their own communities and join the global network of over 1,650 Humanity in Action Senior Fellows. As Senior Fellows, they are eligible for advanced professional, educational, and financial opportunities, such as fellowships in the United States Congress or the European Parliament, human rights-related study trips, conferences in Europe and the US, and grants to translate their own ideas for societal progress into reality.
