Human rights campaign internship
Ris lacoste for hrc’s chefs for equality
The Advocates for Human Rights’ mission includes interns. By offering a variety of internships to undergraduates, graduate students, and law students, the Advocates for Human Rights hopes to seed the human rights movement in the next generation.
Every intern can learn about the international human rights system and develop expertise in specific fields, whether they are helping to write website material, organize volunteers, study country conditions, or perform client intake.
Applicants for outside funding must apply their internship applications at least four weeks before the funding program’s deadline to ensure that we have enough time to review them. Applicants for Equal Justice Works, Soros, Skadden, and other similar fellowships must create a plan in collaboration with The Advocates for Human Rights’ program staff.

Work must always be compensated. Paying human rights internships are also hard to come by. We’ve put together a list of paying human rights internships with organizations and employers all over the world on this website. If you’re done with this page, check out our pages on human rights scholarships, fellowships, courses, master’s degrees, and jobs.
Internships last 12 weeks and require a 32-hour, four-day work week. Interns assist with analysis, proposal planning, and submission of work for publication. The deadline to apply for summer internships is March 15. Find out more here.
Undergraduate and graduate college students may participate in paid internships with the American Red Cross during the summer. Internships give people important hands-on experience working with Red Cross volunteers and workers at the local and national levels. Internships are paid and last 10 weeks with a 40-hour work week.
Each November, applications for summer internships open. To accommodate class schedules, flexible schedules are available. The policy does not cover the costs of relocation or accommodation. Candidates will have a phone interview with the department sponsor during the initial recruiting process. Candidates who are chosen for a second interview will be chosen from a select pool of finalists.

At this time, HRC is unable to provide accommodation for interns. Intern housing is available in many parts of DC, including colleges and private intern housing firms. In the summer, there are a lot of people searching for sub letters.
The Human Rights Campaign works to end discrimination against LGBTQ people and promote basic justice and equality for everyone by empowering and engaging individuals and communities. HRC envisions a world in which lesbians, gays, bisexuals, transgenders, and queer people are treated equally at home, at work, and in every culture.
Out of all the tasks I completed over the summer, I learned and enjoyed copy editing an LGBTQ youth competency training for And Children All Families the most. I learned a lot about how foster and adoption services operate, as well as the special needs of LGBTQ children in out-of-home care and how organizations strive to combat prejudice and heteronormative behavior in these settings. — ’21 Jared Holeman
Beiersdorf international internship challenge
Within the MA in Understanding and Securing Human Rights, the Human Rights Consortium and the Institute of Commonwealth Studies collaborate to provide cutting-edge teaching and practice-based training. The Human Rights Consortium, which is part of the School of Advanced Study, a network of postgraduate research institutes, hosts a variety of research projects led by scholars who lecture on the MA program. The research projects bring together interdisciplinary field expertise to create a national and international collaborative center for the funding, promotion, and dissemination of academic and policy work in the field of human rights. Students benefit from educators who are constantly updating their teaching materials to reflect current study.
The Human Rights Consortium collaborates closely with MA and PhD students to provide them with research promotion and dissemination experience, either through formal internships (20 ECTS) as part of their studies or through informal partnerships. Students are encouraged to blog, organize and attend activities, and participate in and contribute to their tutors’ current academic study. This relationship has proven to be invaluable to many students and a unique way to start a career in human rights research and practice. With the help of HRC research support staff, PhD students in Human Rights will start research projects, host events, write academic papers, and apply for funding. At all stages, the HRC strives to create a stimulating atmosphere for teaching, learning, and study.
