Announcing the 2014 Human Rights Fellowship
This year marks the Human Rights Center's 20th year of sending students into the field to work with human rights organizations. Our fellows come from throughout the University of California system to give their time, energy, and expertise to summer human rights work. Fellows are selected and supported by individual campuses, with the majority of fellows coming from UC Berkeley. Participating campuses this year include UC Berkeley, UC Davis, and UC Irvine. Fellows are awarded a $4,500 stipend and are given year-round support. The application for UC Berkeley students is due on February 20 and is available here. Read more.
