Info Session: Humanity in Action Fellowships!
This is your opportunity to learn about the fellowships and how to prepare a strong application.
History Professor Elidor Mehilli, also a Senior Fellow at Humanity in Action (HIA), will explain the HIA fellowship program and how Hunter undergrads can win one of the selective annual HIA fellowships in human and minority rights. Fellows go to Europe during the summer (for an all-expenses paid immersion program) to meet with local leaders, journalists, human rights and advocates in a particular country, and produce original research exploring how and why individuals and societies, past and present, have resisted intolerance and protected democratic values. Before departing, the US fellows undergo an orientation session at the Council on Foreign Relations in Washington.
No RSVP necessary. Light refreshments will be served.
