It’s time once again to apply for a chance to participate in the Oxford Consortium for Human Rights in Oxford, England. A number of students have written about this opportunity on this blog, so check out what others have experienced before while attending this seminar:
- Yumna Ali, “Learning about Human Rights at Oxford”
- Sareema Adnan, “The Three -isms in Relation to the Oxford Consortium of Human Rights”
- Edwin Villa, “Wrestling with My Future at Oxford”
The Hobby School will once again offer its Fellowships in Human Rights to three students who will represent the University of Houston at this prestigious academic conference in one of the world’s most famous academic institutions.
Here’s the official call for applications:
The Honors College, in conjunction with the Hobby Center for Public Policy’s Civitas Initiative and The Oxford Consortium for Human Rights, will be appointing 3 new fellowships for a trip to Oxford University in the UK, to study “Human Rights in and Out of Conflict,” March 12-18th, 2017 (UH Spring Break) .
The fellowship is of special interest to those whom aim to have careers in a human-rights related field, and who are interested in humanitarian aid, refugee policy, and peacemaking. The week is an intensive, academic seminar, meeting with Oxford Scholars, and international activists and aid workers.
The fellowship will cover each fellow’s costs of the seminar, lodging during the week, and some dinners. Fellows may be responsible to cover the cost of airfare to the UK and some meals.
Please submit a letter of interest that includes any work in global and/or cross cultural scholarship and experience, work or interest in issues of war and peace, human rights, humanitarian aid or global justice, as well as a CV and/or resume, to Dr. Johanna Luttrell, at firstname.lastname@example.org.
