One or more students committed to the study and practice of human rights law will receive scholarships, each of which includes an award of up to $5,000.
Second-year law students will receive priority consideration for the scholarships, but third-year law students may also apply.

(1) a statement of interest (one single-spaced page) that describes your background in human rights and future work you hope to do in the field;
(2) a statement (one single-spaced page) that describes how you might contribute to the life of the Center, including academic and activist projects you might like to pursue;
