The Human Rights Law Centre of the University of Nottingham is pleased to announce two scholarships for our International Human Rights Law Short Course running from 1 October 2018 until 7 December 2018.
The scholarships are sponsored by the Anamax Charitable Foundation to cover travel and accommodation costs and supported by HRLC through a fee waiver. The scholarships are to be awarded to candidates from developing countries in which increased awareness of human rights can be seen to be needed and who would return home to work in human rights. For a list of eligible countries, please visit - http://www.oecd.org/dac/financing-sustainable-development/development-finance-standards/DAC_List_ODA_Recipients2018to2020_flows_En.pdf
The Anamax Charitable Foundation Scholarships (up to the value of £2,750) will cover:
Travel to/from Nottingham to attend the course (inc. airfare, airport transfers)
Accommodation for the ten weeks of the course, inclusive of all related taxes and bills.
HRLC will support the scholarships by offering a bursary to cover the course fee (up to the value of £2,950). The scholarships will be awarded subject to applicants satisfying UK immigration rules and obtaining, if necessary, a short-term study visa (at their own expense), with the support of HRLC. Successful applicants will also be responsible for their own travel/health insurance and day-to-day living expenses (food, local travel, etc.).
How to Apply?
To apply, please send a copy of your CV and a 1,000 word statement (both in English) detailing why you are applying for the short course and explain the work you will be undertaking in human rights upon your return home. Please send to Ms Agnes Flues, HRLC Coordinator, firstname.lastname@example.org.
The deadline is 12 August 2018.
