2016-2017 Gruber Fellowships Now Accepting Applications

September 9th, 2015

Fall Information Sessions for the 2016-2017 Gruber Fellowships in Global Justice and Women’s Rights.
Each year the Gruber Program for Global Justice and Women’s Rights at Yale Law School awards a number of fellowships to graduates of Yale professional and graduate schools. Gruber Fellows earn a $45,000 stipend to spend one year working with a host organization (typically, a non-profit or NGO) anywhere in the world on issues of relevance to the fields of global justice and/or women's rights.  In addition to the stipend, fellowships cover roundtrip airfare (up to $2,000) for international placements, and up to $5,000 for health insurance if not provided by host organization.
Graduating students and alumni up to three years after graduation from any Yale professional or graduate school are eligible to apply.  
Interested applicants should attend one of the campus info sessions if at all possible, and consult the application guidelines and FAQs available online. http://www.law.yale.edu/intellectuallife/gruberfellowships.htm  Descriptions of current and prior Gruber Fellowship projects also are available on the website.  Applicants should also arrange a time in October or early November to meet with Sara Lulo, director of the Gruber Program, to discuss their application and receive feedback on a draft.  Application deadline: December 3, 2015.
