Humanity in Action Diplomacy and Diversity Fellowship

Application deadline:   January 13, 2016

The Diplomacy and Diversity Fellowship is a collaborative, transatlantic program on international relations and global diversity. The Fellowship is designed to develop leadership skills and knowledge among graduate students aspiring to careers in foreign policy. Over four weeks, 24 American and European graduate students meet with leaders in government, business and academia. The Fellows are required to build upon these far-reaching policy discussions by producing research and writing articles. Through this program, Humanity in Action seeks to promote constructive diplomacy in a changing world through innovative and inclusive approaches to national and international issues.

The 2016 program will take place in Washington, Berlin and Warsaw from May 29 to June 26, 2016. Humanity in Action will host and organize multiple sessions in Washington that will focus on building skills, networks and knowledge for foreign policy careers.
