Application deadline for Summer 2017: TBD

The Bernard and Audre Rapoport Center for Human Rights and Justice at the University of Texas School of Law offers summer fellowships to law and graduate students to work at the Rapoport Center. Summer fellows advance the Center's mission and ensure that Center projects reflect and incorporate the diverse perspectives and expertise of a multidisciplinary UT academic community.

These fellowships are an excellent opportunity for students interested in incorporating the study and practice of human rights into their research and professional development and in staying informed of developments in human rights advocacy and scholarship. Summer fellows are chosen based on their backgrounds, academic credentials, and dedication to the study and practice of human rights.

This summer we are particularly interested in candidates with some knowledge of or experience in human rights, and in candidates with experience or serious interest in scholarly publications and publication/graphic design.

Eligibility: This fellowship is open to all law and graduate students.

Commitment: Selected fellows should be available at least 20 hours per week for 12 weeks between the conclusion of the spring semester and the start of the fall semester.

Funding: Fellows will receive a competitive stipend.
