The O’Brien Fellowships are awarded annually, upon recommendation by the Faculty of Law to the Graduate and Postdoctoral Studies Office. They are valued at $25,000 per annum, renewable once for Masters (LL.M.) students and twice for Doctoral (D.C.L.) students (subject to maintaining good standing and providing a satisfactory progress report.) O’Brien Fellows also benefit from a differential fee waiver, meaning that they pay fees at the level of Quebec residents, and one travel grant per year to
present their research results at an academic conference.
Successful applicants will have an outstanding academic record and a strong research proposal in the field of human rights and legal pluralism.
The deadline for O’Brien Fellowship applications is January *15th, 2010*.
