Ana-Maria Szilagyi selected for two prestigious 2017 fellowships

Ana-Maria Szilagyi, GS ’17 and Philosophy and Economics major, was selected for one of the 2017 Humanity in Action Fellowship programs in Europe and the United States. Humanity in Action selected 54 students and recent graduates for the 2017 Fellowship programs out of an extremely competitive pool of 510 applicants from universities and colleges across the United States. 

Ana-Maria will join Fellows from Bosnia and Herzegovina, Denmark, Germany, Greece, the Netherlands, Poland and Ukraine to participate in the Humanity in Action Fellowship summer programs. 
 
Intensive and demanding, the Humanity in Action Fellowship programs bring together international groups of university students and recent graduates to explore past and present examples of resistance to intolerance with a goal of encouraging future leaders to be engaged citizens and responsible decision-makers. Humanity in Action is an international educational organization headquartered in the city of New York.
 
Ana-Maria was also selected as a 2017 Kathryn Davis Fellow for Peace. As one of just 100 recipients of this prestigious award, Szilagyi will pursue an intensive immersion program in German language at the Middlebury Language School this summer. The Kathryn Davis Fellowship provides sponsorship for individuals to receive training in foreign language and policy who have demonstrated interest in international studies, international politics and economics, peace and security studies, or conflict resolution. The Language Schools at Middlebury College are world renowned for language study that offer students complete immersion in the language to improve cultural fluency and linguistic competence.
