Welcome to the Institute for the Study of Human Rights

The goal of the Columbia University Seminar with Indigenous Women Leaders is to provide a complementary human rights program with Columbia professors, so as to give the opportunity to participants to explore a broader context of human rights topics and advocacy.

The Graduate Student Volunteers Program (GSVP) provides Columbia University graduate students the opportunity to expand their professional skills and human rights knowledge and experience through fieldwork with grassroots human rights organizations. Students selected to participate in the program complete an eight-week summer internship with alumni of the Human Rights Advocate Program (HRAP) and receive a travel stipend of $1,500 from the Institute for the Study of Human Rights.

We are excited to announce that this year's George Van Amson Fellowship application is now open! This fellowship is a great opportunity for freshmen, sophomores and juniors to receive a stipend and housing for special service oriented summer projects.
