Do you have a passion for human rights? Are you interested in working with human rights organizations, government agencies, NGOs, or international organizations, both here and abroad? In partnership with the Program on Human Rights, the Center is proud to offer up to three summer Human Rights Fellowships for the summer of 2014. These fellowships, which are offered only to Stanford undergraduates, are intended to enable students to make a valuable contribution to human rights theory and practice. Offered to rising sophomores, juniors and seniors, grants of up to $5,000 each will be given to four undergraduates who commit to working on human rights issues fulltime for a minimum of 8 weeks. It is our hope that these fellowships will encourage students to build human rights work into their future careers.
Please note that there are a number of steps that you must take to prepare yourself to be competitive for the fellowship. Review the FAQs and the timeline below to make sure you are aware of the requirements and can plan accordingly. Please submit your application in hard copy to Jeff Hawthorne at the Haas Center for Public Service by 4:30pm on December 9, 2013.
