The Center for Human Rights and Global Justice is now accepting applications for the 2017-2018  International Law and Human Rights (ILHR) Fellowship Program. CHRGJ coordinates the ILHR Fellowship Program with the Institute for International Law and Justice and the support of the Public Interest Law Center. Applications are due by Sunday, November 5, 2017 at 12:00 p.m. (noon).

The ILHR Fellowship Program consists of three main components:

  • pre-internship preparation and training in the form of course requirements and a series of not for credit seminars in the spring
  • a post-internship academic research paper under the supervision of NYU faculty or staff

All current full-time 1L, 2L, LLM, and JSD students are eligible to apply.

Host internship organizations include international tribunals; UN and regional organizations; and NGOs in locations as diverse as Bogotá, Buenos Aires, Jerusalem, Johannesburg, Kampala, London, New Delhi, New York, Ramallah, Washington, D.C., and Windhoek. See this year’s list of host organizations.

Students selected for the ILHR Fellowship will receive a stipend of $4,500 (for 1Ls) or $6,500 (for 2Ls, LLMs and JSDs).
