The Gallatin Office of Global Programs is pleased to introduce this year’s Gallatin Global Human Rights Fellows.

The Gallatin Global Fellowship in Human Rights ("GFHR"), sponsored by NYU Gallatin, receives support and guidance from distinguished leaders in the international human rights field. This program grants $6,500 fellowships to chosen undergraduate and graduate students from various departments at New York University. These funds aim to assist students in pursuing extended summer projects and internships with human rights organizations, both international and domestic.

Gallatin has sponsored more than 150 Global Fellows since its inception in 2011. The current year saw a robust pool of applicants, comprising numerous highly qualified candidates. From this talented pool, 11 Human Rights Fellows were carefully selected to engage in summer projects with organizations across the globe in 2024.

The 2024 Human Rights Fellows and their partner organizations are as follows:

  • Jana Ababneh (GSAS MA) - Save the Children Jordan - Amman, Jordan
  • Renzo Esposito (Gallatin BA) - Dialogo Diverso - Quito, Ecuador
  • Clare Francis (GSAS MA) - Kaldor Centre for International Refugee Law - Sydney, Australia
  • Raea Lovett (Silver BA) - TBD
  • Ibithal M. (GSAS MA) - Defense for Children International Palestine - TBD
  • Farrah Mina (GSAS MA) - Integrated Community Center - Kuwait City, Kuwait
  • Cameron Patel (CAS BA) - TBD
  • Lawrence Posey (Gallatin BA) - TBD
  • Cameron Roberts (Liberal Studies BA) - The Refugee Law Clinic - London, UK
  • Sachin Sundar (Gallatin BA) - Mountain State Justice - West Virginia, USA
  • Isabella Wolfe (Gallatin BA) - The Language Conservatory - Indiana, USA

The fellows engage in a two-credit human rights seminar and undertake an independent study during the spring semester. Then embark on independent research or internships with international and domestic human rights organizations throughout the summer. This hands-on experience is designed to complement their academic paths at NYU. Upon returning in the fall, the fellows showcase their work and findings from their fellowship experiences during the annual Gallatin Global Fellowship in Human Rights Symposium.
