The Amsterdam Fellowship



If you are passionate about human rights, democracy, and social justice, kickstart your activism journey during the Amsterdam Fellowship. Get notified when we open applications for the 2025 Fellowship!

The Amsterdam Fellowship is an educational program for students and recent graduates about human rights, democracy, and social justice. Each year, Humanity in Action The Netherlands selects a cohort of 20 diverse Fellows across Europe and The United States to take part in our Fellowship.

Fellows meet in Amsterdam for a 3-week in-person program in the summer. When they go home, the implementation of their local Action Projects begins under the mentorship of Humanity in Action.

After the Fellowship, our Fellows run their own Action Projects in their communities.

Through individual Action Projects, Fellows learn how to apply their new knowledge and perspectives in their own communities. Action Projects are as diverse as Humanity in Action Fellows. In the past, Fellows organized lectures, developed podcasts or brought people together through art performances or discussion tables. Planning for the Action Project begins during the in-person program. After the program, Fellows will be assisted by the local Humanity in Action offices.
