Humanity in Action sponsors six summer programs on minority issues in Europe 
and the United States. This year we will select a total of 70 students from 
U.S. colleges and universities to participate in the 2006 programs. We are 
looking for applicants from all majors with a commitment to human rights and 
minority issues. The 2006 summer programs will take place in Amsterdam, 
Berlin, Copenhagen, New York, Paris, and Warsaw. Because we are seeking to

Humanity in Action (HIA) is a New York-based not-for-profit organization 
that seeks to engage, inspire, and empower future human rights leaders by 
giving them the opportunity to meet current human rights leaders in the 
context of transnational educational programs. In each program, American 
students work with an equal number of university students in the host 
countries. (Note: European students from HIA host countries can also find 
applications for the program on the website). Although each program focuses 
on current minority and human rights issues in the host country, in all 
programs students study histories and theories of resistance to the abuse of

Upon completion of the summer program, HIA seeks to further the personal and 
professional growth of participants by offering a network of Senior Fellows 
(graduates of the program) in the U.S. and Europe, periodic lectures and 
conferences, and eligibility for a variety of prestigious internships 
(currently including the International Criminal Tribunal for the former 
Yugoslavia, Interpol, the U.S. House of Representatives, the European 
Parliament, and others). Complete information about HIA and the full range 
of our programs can be found on our website: http://www.humanityinaction.org
