Rapoport Center human rights scholars and undergraduate interns (2019).

40 for Forty Campaign – NOW!

Location: Online

UT Austin’s giving campaign, 40 Hours for the Forty Acres, has launched! The Rapoport Center is raising funds to support opportunities for undergraduate, graduate, and professional students to engage in human rights and social justice work.

Through internships with the Center, student scholarships for summer work with human rights organizations at home and abroad, research grants for summer graduate fieldwork, and student-led activities, we help train and promote the next generation of human rights and social justice advocates and scholars, ensuring that what starts here changes the world.

Head on over to our 40 for Forty webpage and click on the “Donate Now” button. Gifts can be made until Wednesday, September 16, at 10:00 p.m. Every donation in any amount will make a tremendous difference to the students you help fund. Whether or not you are able to make a donation at this time, we would be grateful if you could spread the word (via this Facebook post) throughout your social media networks.

Your support will help make this campaign a success! We thank you!

“Surrounded by the inspiring work taking place by Rapoport staff, scholars, fellows, and visiting lecturers, human rights work came alive for me. I graduated from my Rapoport experience asking myself an exciting, open-ended question: ‘What will your contribution be?'” — Carina Souflee, former undergraduate intern (2007)
