Private support for the Human Rights Program is essential to its continued success. Your contributions not only maintain the Human Rights Program as the strongest connection our students have with the greater human rights community, but also support the invaluable real-world experiences that future generations of policy makers and advocates will receive.

Choose a Fund

Your tax-deductible gift to the program can be used to support a variety of activities, including:

  • Human Rights Internship Fund
    Support student internships and field placements in human rights organizations, opportunities that change the lives of our students helping them to understand the urgency of their academic and professional training.
  • Human Rights Program General Fund
    The general fund supports the program’s basic necessities and allows the Program to continue bringing excellent programming and initiatives to the University community and to the broader community.
  • Scribes for Human Rights Fellowship
    Reports alone do not serve the Human Rights Program’s needs. A writer who can focus on a narrative and can write for a broader citizen-audience greatly enhances the efforts of the Human Rights Program to get its message out to the community and the world. This fellowship supports one MFA student to work with the program as a writer-in-residence.
  • Sharon Grimes Human Rights Fellowship
    Support a Master of Human Rights (MHR) student eager to work in the field of human rights and the environment.
  • Children of Incarcerated Caregivers Research Fund
    Supporting students to undertake approved internships or research related to children of incarcerated caregivers.

Thank you for considering a gift to the Human Rights Program. Your support prepares our next generation of critical thinkers and leaders in the ongoing struggle for human rights.
