The Human Rights Internship Program is an opportunity for University of Chicago students to explore human rights in practice around the world. Human Rights Interns are awarded a flexible grant of $5,000 to pursue a 10- to 12-week summer internship related to their regional or thematic interests. 

Each year the Pozen Center supports an internship cohort of up to 30 students. Since it began in 1998, our program has helped place over 500 students in human rights internships. 

See the following pages for more details: 

Year-at-a-Glance explains what happens during each quarter of the internship program.

Held each Janury, our day-long Annual Symposium is an opportunity for the campus community to hear presentations by returning interns.

Our page for Host Organizations provides helpful information for organizations that are considering hosting a summer intern. 

Appy to the program! The application period for the 2020 cohort is now closed.
