Description

From May 30 to July 5, Humanity in Action conducts two educational programs that run simultaneously in Denmark and The Netherlands. Twenty university students from the US will participate along with 10 Danish and 10 Dutch students. HIA works in association with Johns Hopkins University and in cooperation with the U.S. Holocaust Memorial Museum. HIA develops leaders among American and European university students, strengthens their commitment to democratic values, and fosters their knowledge of resistance to violations of human rights--past and present. Programs focus on the collective and individual protection of European Jews during the Second World War as a way to explore contemporary threats to the rights of minorities.

Eligibility

College sophomores, juniors and seniors are eligible to apply. HIA seeks Fellows of all backgrounds and selects them on the basis of leadership potential, academic achievement and interest in human rights.
