2023 Human Rights Research Award

Monday, October 2, 2023
The Institute for the Study of Human Rights (ISHR) is inviting faculty to submit proposals for the Human Rights Research Award.
The Human Rights Research Award supports Columbia University faculty conducting research related to human rights and will provide students with an opportunity to gain valuable experience. In the 2023-2024 academic year, ISHR will award a limited number of research stipends to students in the amount of $1,500.
Students who receive the Human Rights Research Award are expected to complete approximately 80-120 hours of research assistance. Specific research opportunities for students will be announced as they become available.
Current Columbia University faculty who are interested in working with a student on a human rights research project are requested to email the following materials to humanrightsed@columbia.edu:
  • a brief summary of the research project,
  • expected research needs from the student, and
  • a timeline for the project.  
Deadline: Rolling submission, with preference given to proposals received by Friday, November 10th.
