Humanity in Action Fellowships

Who Is Eligible:

Applicants to the Humanity in Action Fellowship must be currently enrolled undergraduate students (sophomores, juniors and seniors) or recent graduates. For the 2018 Fellowship, we define recent graduates as individuals from the undergraduate classes of 2016 and 2017 at accredited, four-year undergraduate colleges or universities in the United States. Applicants of minority backgrounds are strongly encouraged to apply.

If you are an American citizen studying at a foreign university, you are eligible to apply to the Humanity in Action Fellowship through the United States. If you are an American student studying at a university in Bosnia and Herzegovina, Denmark, France, Germany, the Netherlands or Poland, you may be eligible to apply through the Humanity in Action offices in those countries. Please contact those offices directly to confirm your eligibility.

If you are a non-US citizen studying at a university in the United States, you are eligible to apply to the Humanity in Action Fellowship through the US office.

Applicants may apply to both the Humanity in Action Fellowship programs in Europe and the United States through a single application. However, they cannot choose their city of participation.

Selection Process

Admissions to the Humanity in Action Fellowship programs are highly competitive. In 2017, the acceptance rate for the Humanity in Action Fellowship program was 7% percent.  

The selection process involves two phases. In the first phase, a panel of Humanity in Action Board members and Senior Fellows reads all applications and selects a pool of finalists for further review by a Selection Committee. During the second phase, the Selection Committee reads and evaluates all finalist applications, and one of its members interviews each finalist. The final selections are based on this second reading and the interview.

Humanity in Action does not discriminate on the basis of race or ethnicity, religion, political party, gender identity, sexual orientation, physical or financial ability.
