Each year, NYU Gallatin sponsors the Global Fellowship in Human Rights, which is supported and advised by a group of distinguished leaders in the field of international human rights. The program awards fellowships to select undergraduate and graduate students from across New York University in the amount of $6,500 each to support extended summer projects and internships with international and domestic human rights organizations. Since 2011, Gallatin has sponsored 141 Global Human Rights Fellows. In 2023, the following Gallatin Global Human Rights Fellows will join with partner organizations:
Aarna Dixit (Global Liberal Studies BA) - TBD
Yassmine Hussein (Gallatin MA) - Cairo 52 Legal Research Institute - Egypt
Santana Kavanaugh (Gallatin BA) - National Association of Criminal Defense Lawyers - USA
Olivia Krivitsky (Gallatin BA) - Institute for Excellence in Health Equity - USA
Alice Ni (Gallatin BA) - Minority Rights Group - Kenya
Laura Maria Rojas (Wagner MPA) - Oxfam Mexico - Mexico
Puja Thapa (GSAS MA) - WOREC Nepal - Nepal
Abigail Toomey (GSAS MA) - CLUSTER - Egypt

During the spring semester before the summer work, the fellows participate in a two-credit human rights seminar and complete an independent study. Over the summer, the fellows conduct independent research or pursue internships with international and domestic human rights organizations to gain experience in the human rights field in ways that complement their academic trajectories at NYU. In the fall, the fellows present at the annual Gallatin Global Fellowship in Human Rights Symposium, giving an overview of their fellowship work and their findings while working in the field.
