Human Rights Fellowships
MIT's Program on Human Rights and Justice offers in-residence fellowships for academic year 2009-10. Fellowships are for post-docs, practitioners, and government and multilateral agency officials. The fellowship fee is $3,000 for one semester, $5,000 for the entire academic year (September through May), paid by the Fellow or his/her sponsoring institution to MIT. The residency includes office space at the MIT Center for International Studies (CIS), all library privileges, access to courses, and all other campus activities. Fellows typically interact with the entire academic community of the greater Boston area, and would be expected to give a seminar presentation during their tenure. The PHRJ Fellows have in the past come from U.N. agencies, other universities, and NGOs. No financial aid is available, and Fellows are responsible for their own housing and living expenses. CIS is a multi-disciplinary research center addressing many global issues. Applications should include a CV and letter explaining their interest in the fellowship, with two references listed. There is no deadline.

Thank you for understanding and supporting Indigenous Peoples Issues Today. We understand that some viewers may be concerned that ads are sometimes served for companies that negatively depict indigenous peoples and their cultures. We understand this concern. However, there are many legitimate companies that utilize Google Adwords and other programs to attract visitors. Currently, we have no way of deciphering between the two - we leave it up to the viewer to decide whether the companies serving ads are honest or not.
