HIA invites applications from college students and recent graduates who are intellectually gifted, mature, independent and passionate about human rights. Current sophomores, juniors, and seniors and graduates from the classes of 2009 and 2010 are eligible to apply.
The HIA Fellowship brings together international groups of Fellows to study minority rights and produce research exploring how and why individuals and societies, past and present, have resisted intolerance and protected democratic values. Separate programs will take place for five weeks in Amsterdam, Berlin, Copenhagen, Paris, and Warsaw. Applications are due on January 10, 2011.
Intensive and demanding, the HIA Fellowship features daily lectures and discussions with renowned academics, journalists, politicians, and activists, as well as site visits to government agencies, non-profit organizations, museums and memorials. Participation requires a great deal of intellectual curiosity and stamina, as well as the ability to work effectively in international teams.
After the program, Fellows are expected to participate in HIA's international network of alumni and to sustain their engagement in the human rights issues addressed during the HIA Fellowship. There are also a number of professional fellowship opportunities available for HIA alumni—such as internship programs run by HIA in the U.S. Congress, European Parliament, and community organizations in San Francisco. HIA Fellows are frequently selected for further post-graduate fellowships, with large numbers of Marshall, Mitchell, Fulbright, Watson and Echoing Green Fellows among HIA alumni.
