Human rights program open for journalists [Worldwide]

Journalists from low-income countries can apply for this program at Columbia University.

The Institute for the Study of Human Rights (ISHR) is accepting applications for the Human Rights Advocates Program (HRAP). It will begin in the latter half of August and run until mid-December 2014.

The program leverages the resources of Columbia University and international organizations such as Human Rights Watch and WITNESS to provide proven grassroots leaders with skills-building and networking opportunities.

Through workshops, seminars, Columbia University classes and meetings with policy makers and potential funders, participants will share their experiences, reflect critically on their strategies, and plan future campaigns.

HRAP is designed for lawyers, journalists, doctors, teachers, social workers, community organizers and other human rights activists. Advocates must provide proof of institutional endorsement from their organizations for their participation in the program and must commit to returning to that organization.

Applicants from high-income countries will not be considered except those representing marginalized communities.

ISHR makes every effort to provide full funding to cover participants’ program costs as well as travel and housing. A stipend is also provided for basic costs.
The deadline is Nov. 1.
