The application for the Satter Fellowship in Human Rights is now OPEN. Made possible by a generous gift by Muneer A. Satter JD’87, the fellowship is designed to support and promote human rights defense in response to mass atrocity or widespread and severe patterns of rights abuse. The Satter Fellowship has helped launch the careers of many human rights practitioners who have gone on to contribute substantially to the field.
Applications are due March 29, 2021. Applicants must email Tyler Giannini for advising by March 1, 2021.

Please note that this fellowship is only open to Harvard Law School recent graduates and alumni.

This is your friendly reminder from the Human Rights Program that there are several post-graduate fellowship opportunities with deadlines in February and March.
We strongly advise you to tap into the wisdom and generosity of Judy Murciano, Fellowships Director, who is available for advising now and throughout the year. She is, without a doubt, one of the best resources available at HLS.
A couple of pressing deadlines are worth noting: Materials for the University Traveling Fellowships (The Kennedy, Knox and Shelton Traveling Fellowships, as they are collectively known, and the Australian Graduate Research Fellowships) must be submitted to Judy, by hard copy, the week of Feb. 2, so that she can write nominating letters by Feb. 13. The fellowships support a full academic year of research or study abroad for Harvard graduate/doctoral students or 2015 graduates of one of Harvard’s professional schools.
Applications for the Ford Foundation’s Post-Graduate Fellowship in Public Interest Law are due to OPIA by February 9. The fellowship funds one year of full-time work at a Ford Foundation grantee organization beginning in fall 2015. Only 3Ls, clerks, and JD alumni presently on 1 year fellowships may apply. Strong preference will be given to 3Ls.
The application for the Public Service Venture Fund is due March 2 for work in the public interest at either a non-profit or government agency. Strong preference for 3Ls, but clerks and LLMs may apply. All materials must be submitted online.
HRP also offers two post-graduate fellowships—the Henigson and the Satter—both of which have deadlines in early March. To find out more about those fellowships, please join us on Jan. 30 for an informational session at noon in WCC 4059.

As South Sudan’s official independence day approaches, former Satter fellow Nasredeen Abdulbari, LLM ’08, reflects on challenges past and present in a compelling piece for today’s Guardian. He also offers a message of hope:
“The past six decades of northern and southern Sudan’s relations, no one could deny, were difficult, painful and full of problems. However, our two nations need to open a new chapter, as we both move into the terra incognita of tomorrow.
In the name of all northern Sudanese, who have nothing in their hearts for the people of the south but love, I say to the people of South Sudan what Martin Luther King and others from all over the world said to the people of Ghana the day it gained its independence from Britain: ‘We greet you. And we give you our moral support. We hope for you God’s guidance as you move now into the realm of independence.'”
Nasredeen is currently a lawyer, academic, and lecturer in the International and Comparative Law Department at the University of Khartoum. For an article on his time at Harvard Law School, learn more from the Gazette.
