Public Interest Law Center

Arthur Helton Global Human Rights Fellowship

Created in 2008, this fellowship supports one or more graduating students annually who have demonstrated a commitment to pursuing a career in international human rights law, and who have designed sound proposals for work at a host organization that they have chosen.  Applicants are invited to design projects to put their legal education to work on timely issues in countries where their efforts are most needed and where there are insufficient resources for human rights protection. The fellowship will provide a modest salary for one year and will cover health insurance and travel costs for graduates to work closely with their chosen host organization.
