The Human Rights Center at the UC Berkeley School of Law provides fellowships for Berkeley students wishing to contribute their energy and expertise to human rights organizations worldwide, and partners with certain partner UC campuses that send students to participate in the program. The fellowships provide opportunities for meaningful human rights work domestically and internationally. Since it was founded in 1994, the program has sent almost 400 fellows to work with organizations in some 81 countries and territories. Student fellows come from a wide range of disciplines, including journalism, law, environmental science, public policy, public health, anthropology, and medicine. Info sessions for applicants are usually held in December or January prior to the start of the fellowship cycle, with applications due in late February.
