Intensive and demanding, the Humanity in Action Fellowship brings together international groups of university students and recent graduates to explore national histories of discrimination and resistance, as well as examples of issues affecting different minority groups today.
The programs, when appropriate to national histories, address the destructive common roots of prejudice, discrimination and dehumanization. These practices were directed towards Jews and other minorities in Europe during the Nazi era and Holocaust. Those under colonial rule in Africa, Asia, South, Central and North America and the Caribbean Islands were subject to racist policies and attitudes. Countries which experienced other totalitarian regimes after World War II also address the impact that socialism and its implosion had on their societies.
Students and recent graduates from Bosnia and Herzegovina, Denmark, Germany, Greece, the Netherlands, Poland, Ukraine and the United States. Students and recent graduates of other nationalities may apply if they are enrolled in or have recently graduated from a university in one of the countries listed above.
