The Human Rights Advocates Program is a capacity building program based at Columbia University, New York, U.S.A.
It is designed for human rights activists, including journalists, who work for NGOs at the grassroots level. The program will focus on providing tools and skills for building strong organizations, such as strategic planning, organizing campaigns, and fundraising.
University courses at Columbia will be offered in human rights, development and the environment. The program runs from late August until mid-December 2011.
Fluency in English is required. Candidates from low-income countries without previous opportunities to study internationally will be given preference. Experience in, and commitment to, human rights work must be demonstrated.
