2020 Schell Center’s Kirby Simon Summer Fellowships at Yale University
Deadline: March 13, 2020.
The Schell Center’s Kirby Simon Summer Fellowships, supported by a generous grant from the Robina Foundation, provide funding for Yale students to undertake at least six weeks of human rights work during the summer. They honor Kirby Simon, the son of Professor John Simon, who was a foreign service officer and died in 1995 while serving in Taiwan. In recent years, as many as 20 percent of all first-year law students have received summer funding from the Schell Center for international human rights work.
1. Law students and undergraduate students in the Multidisciplinary Academic Program in Human Rights are both eligible for Kirby Simon Fellowships.
2. Applications from non-graduating Yale Law School students receive priority
Kirby Simon Fellowships cover both travel costs and living expenses.
