Purpose of the Fellowship
The Stanford Human Rights Center (‘the Center’) offers one (1) Human Rights Fellowship for graduating Stanford Law School students or recent graduates who have demonstrated a strong commitment to international human rights. The fellowships will provide recent graduates with experience essential to developing a career in human rights work. The fellowships are not intended to fund research at academic or similar institutions, but instead to promote engaged practice with a human rights supranational human rights body, wherever located, whose work focuses in significant degree on the developing world. Typically, preference will be given to applicants who wish to work within the inter-American human rights system, or the African human rights system.
Applications for this fellowship have been put on hold, starting on academic year 2015-2016. Applications may reopen during the 2016-2017 academic year. The Center will post new information on this fellowship as it becomes available.
