Pozen Dissertation Completion Fellowship
The Pozen Family Center for Human Rights awards an annual Human Rights Dissertation Completion Fellowship to a doctoral student whose work makes an important contribution to human rights scholarship. The first fellowship was awarded in 2014.
The fellowship provides a stipend ($27,000), tuition, University student health insurance (basic option), and Student Life Fee. Recipients of the fellowship are expected to participate in the intellectual life of the Pozen Center.
