Students whose concentrations incorporate the study of human rights may apply to participate in the Gallatin Global Fellowship in Human Rights program. This year-long program provides several Gallatin students with up to $5,000 each to support research and work in the field of human rights, broadly defined. In the spring semester, participants study the concept, history and political manifestations of human rights in both a seminar and independent studies. In the summer, they engage in extended research or internships at organizations around the world. In the fall, they present their findings at a symposium open to the entire university community.
Gallatin Global Fellowship in Urban Practice
The Gallatin Global Fellowship in Urban Practice (GGFUP) provides funding of up to $5,000 and support for 6-10 advanced undergraduate and Master's students to pursue extended, community-engaged research projects in partnership with urban social justice organizations in New York, Madrid, Kolkata, Chicago, and Oakland. Based on a vision of sharing resources, producing practical scholarly research, and self-reflexively critiquing systems of power and privilege, this fellowship is built upon established long-term partnerships with community-based organizations. Each research project is co-designed by the host organization with faculty mentors and GGFUP fellows.
