The Humanity in Action (HIA) programs are designed to facilitate an ongoing trans-Atlantic dialogue about the challenges that democratic societies encounter as they experience new degrees and forms of diversity. The goal is to promote the growth of future decision makers through rigorous inquiry, discussion and research; to reinforce the HIA Fellows’ commitment to democratic values and human rights; and to foster a growing international community bound together by these commitments. Fellows will be selected on the basis of their demonstrated commitment to human rights, evidence of leadership potential, and outstanding academic achievement. All Majors and academic disciplines are encouraged to apply.
