About the Summer Fellows Program
Human Rights Summer Fellowship Program Re-Organization,
Currently, the Human Rights Summer Fellowship is being
re-designed. The Human Rights Program is dedicated to enabling students to explore human rights issues and learn more about human rights organization in
Hartford, their hometowns, as well as in metropolitan areas in the U.S and
abroad. Our goal is to re-organize the fellowship program so that
human rights majors and minors and those interested in human rights have
a greater opportunity to pursue their own individual interests with some
financial assistance from the Human Rights program. In order to achieve
this vision, we are currently partnering with the Career Development Office to
offer students a greater variety of options for internships as well as an
application and oversight process which would enable students to obtain
assistance should they desire to create their own human rights projects.
We hope to get the summer program up and running for summer 2014.

If you are interested in
an internship specifically geared toward human rights, there is
information about other human rights internships (unpaid) under the link
"other internships." You can also click on the Human
Rights Newsletters which contain additional and more current internship
information. Students should feel free to contact the career
development center to see what other possibilities exist. If you are not
a human rights major or minor, there is no need to go through the HR program.
