The Generation Next Humanitarian Fellowship Program is an initiative that aims to increase the diversity of professionals in the humanitarian sector by building a pathway for seniors and recent graduates of Historically Black Colleges and Universities, Hispanic-Serving Institutions, Asian American and Pacific Islander Institutions and Tribal Colleges and Universities.
By creating new pathways into the sector and providing guided professional development opportunities and mentorship, the Generation Next Humanitarian Fellowship Program will ultimately contribute to a humanitarian workforce that reflects the rich diversity of the U.S. population, and is equipped to equitably and effectively respond to humanitarian needs around the world.
