Announcing the Humanity in Action Fellowship

Dear Friend:

HIA invites applications from current students (college sophomores, juniors, and seniors) and recent graduates (classes of 2008 and 2009) who are intellectually gifted, mature, independent, and passionate about human rights and social justice. Please forward this email to students who may be qualified for participation.

The HIA summer fellowship programs bring together international groups of Fellows to study minority rights and human rights doctrines in democratic societies. Separate programs will take place for five weeks in Amsterdam, Berlin, Copenhagen, New York, and Warsaw. Applications are due on January 23, 2010.

Intensive and demanding, the HIA fellowship features daily lectures and discussions with renowned academics, journalists, politicians, and activists, as well as a significant number of site visits to government agencies, non-profit and community organizations, museums, and memorials. The programs require a great deal of intellectual curiosity and stamina, as well as the ability to work effectively in international teams.

After the summer programs, Fellows are expected to participate in HIA's international network of alumni and to sustain their engagement in the human rights issues addressed during the HIA fellowship. There are also a number of professional fellowship opportunities available for HIA alumnisuch as internship programs run by HIA in the U.S. Congress, European Parliament, and community organizations in San Francisco. HIA Fellows are also frequently selected for further post-graduate fellowships, with large numbers of Marshall, Mitchell, Fulbright, Watson and Presidential Management Fellows among HIA alumni.

We hope you agree that this is a wonderful opportunity for college students and recent graduates you may know, and that you will forward this email widely. Students of all majors and academic disciplines are encouraged to apply. Full application materials are available on our website at:
