If you’re interested in a fellowship that allows you to travel while providing volunteer services then The Human Interaction Project’s Giving Back Program is a great opportunity for you.
Accepted students will have their airfare, housing, UBELONG program fees, medical insurance and some incidentals covered when they take part in this 10-14 day fellowship. Each student will be partnered with the international volunteering organization, UBELONG, to carry out a volunteer trip while immersed in a new culture. Before their journey students will receive training in leadership and philanthropy.
To be eligible students must be 18-25 years old and complete an online application. Applicants must be studying in the United States but can be from any country and pursuing any degree. Two letters of recommendation, a brief essay and a recent photo are also required.
The selection committee for The Human Interaction Project’s Giving Back Program will review all applications, and select the final applicants to participate in a Skype interview. Key attributes that the selection committee will be evaluating applicants on include:
- Concern with your fellow man
- A hunger for self-growth
- Openness to foreign cultures
- Willingness to step outside your comfort zone
- An independent streak
Five individuals will be accepted and upon return expected to share their journey through blogging, videos and speeches.
