Student Awards

The Pozen Family Center for Human Rights sponsors annual awards for both undergraduate and graduate students.

The Dr. Aizik Wolf Post-Baccalaureate Fellowship awards a recent graduate of the College of the University of Chicago a one year stipend to work at a non-governmental organization, government agency, or international body dedicated to human rights. 

The Ignacio Martín-Baró Human Rights Award commemorates the life and work of a University alumnus assassinated by the Salvadoran army in 1989 by recognizing the best human rights papers by students.

The Center also supports training for human rights scholars through grants to University of Chicago Ph.D. students to develop and teach new human rights courses in the College. For more information, see Graduate Student Resources.
