Our fellowship includes individuals from diverse countries, religious backgrounds, and academic and professional experience. Each year, we accept fellows who demonstrate leadership capacity, an eagerness to learn, and a commitment to rolling up their sleeves to put in hard work. Our 2020-2021 cohort includes fellows from India, Belgium, Argentina, Netherlands, Greece, USA, Canada, and Australia. Among the fellows are energetic educators, artists, those with backgrounds in social work and psychology, aspiring lawyers, and fellows building careers as human rights activists, to name just a few.
