Global Student International Fellowship Program


The Australian Human Rights Institute’s Global Student Fellowship Program enables UNSW students to undertake a fellowship with a leading international development or human rights-based organization. The fellowship will provide students with experience in building a career pathway in human rights and development, and grow their network.

Fellowships are for no less than six weeks and will take place during the university summer break (flexible, usually between December-February and may involve a mix of in-person and virtual participation). The fellowship period will be determined in conjunction with the relevant organization and may be flexible on hours/timing during this period. This is an excellent opportunity for students interested in developing a career in human rights and development to gain valuable experience and insights.
