Human Rights Summer Internships

Human Rights Summer Internships

The Human Rights Program is dedicated to enabling students to explore human rights issues and learn more about human rights organizations in Hartford, their hometowns, and metropolitan areas in the United States and abroad.  Our goal is to provide opportunities for human rights majors and minors in pursuit of their own individual interests with financial assistance from the Human Rights Program.  In order to achieve this vision, we are partnered with the Career Development Center to offer students a variety of options for internships as well as an application and oversight process that would provide financial assistance to those students who desire to create their own human rights projects.  Each year, the Human Rights Program selects several Trinity students who have obtained a human rights internship to be awarded stipends as they work at the organization of their choice.  The internships, which offer students the opportunity to translate what they have learned in their Trinity courses to hands-on professional experiences, prove to be transformative.  Students return to campus with a more sophisticated understanding of human rights issues and the world of advocacy. 

There is information about human rights internships (unpaid) under the link "other internships."    Students should also feel free to contact the CareerDevelopment Center to see what possibilities exist.  If you are not a human rights major or minor, there is no need to go through the Human Rights program.
