Immersion in U.S. Politics on the Hill: The Lantos-Humanity in Action Congressional Fellowship Experience



The Lantos Fellowship offers members of the Humanity in Action Network an opportunity to work with the U.S. Congress, for four months. Through the Fellowship they explore political issues spanning broad topics and take part in trips to visit and discuss with academics in a myriad of fields.

The seminars included meetings with professionals from all sectors, seminars, debates, and study visits in DC and New York City.”
