HIA FELLOWSHIP JOURNEY
01 FELLOWSHIP EXPERIENCE IN PROGRAM LOCATION
The Humanity in Action Fellowship explores issues of democracy, pluralism, human rights, and social justice. Each program is tailored to its location. Fellows are challenged to understand their host city’s unique history of injustice, its present struggles to encompass groups with minoritized cultures and identities, and the future of its democratic values. For four weeks, Fellows engage with local experts and community members, visit museums and historical sites, and engage in constant discourse with one another and speakers. Each program has a cohort of roughly 22 students and recent graduates.
02 ACTION PROJECT DEVELOPMENT IN OWN COMMUNITY
Action Projects are as diverse as Humanity in Action Fellows. Fellows apply their new knowledge and perspectives to the communities they impact—in whatever format they find meaningful. Past Action projects have been seminar series and workshops, documentaries, arts festivals, and new organizations that serve a public good. Planning for the Action Project begins during the on-site study portion of the Fellowship, through workshops and collaborative discussion. An Action Project is a part-time commitment—Fellows return to their work or studies at the end of the first month of the Fellowship.
03 ENTRANCE INTO HUMANITY IN ACTION COMMUNITY
The Senior Fellow network is the heart of the Humanity in Action community. Our 2,000 Senior Fellows work around the world, across many different industries. You will find Humanity in Action Senior Fellows working in government, journalism, medicine, law, education, the arts, business, and grassroots action. Senior Fellows stay engaged with Humanity in Action long after their Fellowship programs through the conferences, workshops, grants, seminars, and study trips we offer every year. They also support one another. Friendships made during the Fellowship last for years and many Senior Fellows find professional opportunities through the community.
