The Bernard and Audre Rapoport Center for Human Rights and Justice at the University of Texas School of Law offers summer fellowships to law and graduate students. Summer fellows advance the Center's mission and ensure that Center projects reflect and incorporate the diverse perspectives and expertise of a multidisciplinary UT academic community.

This summer we are particularly interested in candidates with experience or serious interest in scholarly publications, event planning, fundraising, publication/graphic design, grant writing, and/or film editing, and in candidates with specialized knowledge of human rights.

These fellowships are an excellent opportunity for students interested in incorporating the study and practice of human rights into their research and professional development and in staying informed of developments in human rights scholarship. Summer fellows are chosen based on their backgrounds, academic credentials, and dedication to the study and practice of human rights.

Eligibility: This fellowship is open to all law and graduate students.

Commitment: Selected fellows should be available at least 20 hours per week for 12 weeks between the conclusion of the spring semester and the start of the fall semester.

Funding: Fellows will receive a stipend based on the time they work with the Center.
