The Gallatin Global Fellowship in Human Rights supports selected NYU students in undertaking extended research or experiential learning projects during the summer with organizations focusing on human rights. We are open to students finding organizations that approach human rights in heterodox ways, but human rights should be an anchor in their effort to bring about social change. The fellowship is anticipated to allow students to both contribute to the host organization and gain experience in the human rights field in ways that complement their academic trajectory at NYU. Before competing this application, see the program website for more details on the program requirements and eligibility.
The program is open to all undergraduate students in degree-granting programs at NYU and to master’s students in Engineering, Gallatin, the College of Global Public Health, the Graduate School of Arts and Science, Law, Nursing, Social Work, Steinhardt, Tisch, and Wagner. This fellowship was organized primarily to benefit students who have little access to such funding; therefore, applications from undergraduates will receive priority consideration. All selected fellows must be enrolled and in residence at NYU's New York campus during the Spring semester following the application deadline and must be matriculated at NYU during the summer of the fellowship project. Additionally, undergraduate fellows must be matriculated at NYU during the Fall semester following the summer project.
