The Fellowship Programme (herein ‘the Fellowship’) was initiated in September 2016 in collaboration with the American Bar Association- Rule of Law Initiative. The Fellowship provides a unique opportunity for young individual’s who have demonstrated a commitment to the human rights and justice field in their early career or during their undergraduate degree.

The fellow is housed for a period of six – twelve months at the CFHR. During this time, the fellow is expected to work on (i) a particular area of interest to contribute to the broader goals of the CFHR and (ii) assist in running the CFHR. The fellow may be involved in a number of activities such as: teaching components of the clinical programs, devising relevant campaigns for the CFHR, interacting with government, non-government and international stakeholders to develop and support the work of the CFHR. 

The Fellowship is designed to provide an enriching environment that promotes initiative taking to ensure our fellows can transform into young, independent leaders. At the end of the Fellowship, the fellows should have gained specific knowledge in their area of expertise, along with an understanding of the national and international human rights systems. The Programme also serves as a launchpad to start your own human rights project by allowing fellows the opportunity to build strategic relationships with local and international organizations and partners.
