Offer: Human rights fellowship (gender) at Colby College

Colby College, under the Oak Institute for the Study of International Human Rights, invites applications for its human rights fellowship. Funding enables a prominent practitioner in international human rights to take sabbatical leave from front-line work to spend the fall semester in residence at Colby. The fellow's responsibilities include regular meetings with students and assistance in shaping a lecture series or symposium on his or her human rights interests. This year, the fellowship focuses on human rights protection in situations relating to gender. This focus is not limited to activism involving women, but also includes the protection of sexual minorities and activism on men or masculinity.

Activists working on sexual and reproductive rights, gender empowerment and education, human and sexual trafficking, activism against gender-based violence, gender- and sexual-based asylum, or gender and environmental rights, are invited to apply. Eligibility is restricted to those whose work takes place primarily outside the US. The fellowship includes a US$32,000 stipend, as well as health benefits, housing, a campus meal plan and transportation. The fellow will also receive research support, including office space, secretarial support, computer and library facilities and a student assistant. A limited budget is allocated to help offset the cost of transportation, housing and meals for dependent family members who accompany the fellow. Following the period of the award, the fellow is expected to return to her or his human rights work.
