Humanity in Action (HIA) is an international fellowship that aims to instill the values of human dignity and moral responsibility for the protection of the rights of minorities in a new generation of social, cultural, and political leaders.  This is a wonderful opportunity for students to develop this understanding with an international network in countries where they will have the opportunity to build  multi-national, intergenerational network of present and emerging leaders in diverse professional fields who share these commitments.

In 2009, two UW students were selected for the summer program — Mina Barahimi, a Law Societies & Justice major and Sarah Howard, a CHID and Latin American Studies major.  Barahimi studied in Amsterdam and Howard studied in New York City. 

Program eligibility:

All majors and academic disciplines are encouraged to apply.    

    *  Applicants to the HIA Core Programs must be matriculated sophomores, juniors, seniors, or recent graduates (Classes of 2008 and 2009) at accredited, four-year colleges or universities in the United States.

    *  Fellows will be selected on the basis of their demonstrated commitment to minority rights, evidence of leadership potential, and outstanding academic achievement.

    *  Fellows will be responsible for financing the cost of airfare to participate in the program. HIA will cover this cost for Fellows with documented need.
