Congrats to the Center for Ethics in Society's human rights fellows Garima Sharma, Lara Mitra, and Nicolle Richards for being included on Business Insider's list of "15 Incredibly Impressive Students At Stanford." Garima Sharma taught human rights education to girls in Forbesganj, India. Lara Mitra did research on midwives in Gujarat, India. And Nicolle Richards worked in Guatemala developed a micro-business program for young girls who were victims of sex trafficking and sexual abuse.
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 four summer Human Rights Fellowships for the summer of 2015. 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.
