International Human Rights Internship Program
International Human Rights Internship Program (IHRIP) makes grants available to human rights organizations in Africa, Asia, the Middle East, Latin America, the Caribbean, East and Central Europe and CIS countries to enable their staff to undertake professional development exchange projects.
A grant covers the travel of the staff member or trainer as well as a basic living stipend and health insurance for the staff member (or trainer).
Grants vary depending on the location and length of the project, and typically range from $1,000-10,000.
A project can be:
A professional attachment, through which a staff member from an organization in one country serves as a temporary staff member of a host organization in another country, acquiring on-the-job training in a specific area of work or skill.
An on-site training, in which an individual from one country who has particular experience and expertise in a specific area of work provides training to the staff of an organization in another country.
A study tour, through which a staff member from an organization learns more about a specific area of work or about a particular strategy or approach to work by visiting and consulting with two or more human rights or human rights-related institutions in one or more other countries.
