Announcing the UC Human Rights Fellowship Competition for 2012

Posted By Kevin R. Johnson, Feb 2, 2012

Here's a message from Professor Anupam Chander, Director of the California International Law Center.


            The California International Law Center (CILC) at UC Davis School of Law is pleased to announce the 2012 UC Human Rights Fellowship competition!  Two fellowships are available for fieldwork by UC Davis students, either within the United States or abroad, during the summer of 2012.  Each fellowship carries a stipend of $4,500.

            The fellowship offers each student recipient the opportunity to carry out fieldwork with human rights organizations related to the student’s area of study.  The purpose of the fellowship is to provide students with an opportunity to contribute to the work of human rights organizations while gaining practical experience that may influence the students’ area of research or academic focus.  Students are encouraged to publish the results of their fieldwork.  In recent years, fellows from UC Davis have traveled to Sierra Leone, Ethiopia, and New York to work on human rights.

            Any student registered at UC Davis is eligible, though preference will be given to graduate students and returning students.

            Further information on the fellowship, including the application and information on past student fellows from Davis can be found at  For questions regarding the UC Davis application, please contact Kristen Hill at  Fellowship applications are due on Tuesday, February 28, 2012, 4:00 p.m.
