Harriet Hale Woolley Scholarship
September

http://www.feusa.org/en/culture/harriet-hale-woolley-scholarship

The Harriet Hale Woolley Scholarship is a private grant awarded annually to up to four graduate and post-graduate American students in the visual fine arts (painting, graphic design, printmaking, sculpture, photography) and music (composition, instrumental or vocal performance). The scholarship is not intended for research in art history, or musicology, nor for dance or theatre. Successful candidates propose a unique and detailed project related to their study which requires a one-year residency in Paris. As this project should include enrollment in a recognized French art school or music conservatory, it is strongly suggested that the candidate establish a significant contact with a teacher or institution prior to arriving in France and to show evidence of this contact in his/her application dossier. Each of the HHW Scholarships carries a stipend of 8,500 euros paid in four installments throughout the academic year.

Humanity in Action
January

http://www.humanityinaction.org/

HIA programs are designed to promote and facilitate an ongoing, trans-Atlantic and intra-European dialog about the challenges that democratic societies encounter as they experience new degrees and forms of diversity. The goal is to reinforce the HIA Fellows' commitment to democratic values and human rights; to encourage American and European students to become leaders in these fields; and to foster a growing international community bound together by these commitments. The core fellowship programs are in Denmark, France, Germany, The Netherlands, Poland, and the United States. Each core program is divided into two phases in the summer. During the first phase, recognized leaders of human rights organizations, politicians, diplomats, philanthropists, journalists, scholars, artists and authors meet with the Fellows during three-and-a-half weeks of intensive seminars, site visits, and focus group activities. Each program culminates in a period of research and writing. International teams of Fellows focus on past and present minority issues in their host country, producing a written report.
