USA: Oak Human Rights Fellowship, Colby College


Nomination Deadline: *November 1, 2010*
Application Deadline: *December 15, 2010*

The Oak Institute for the Study of International Human Rights at Colby College is pleased to announce a call for applications for the 2011 Oak Fellowship. We seek one front-line human rights activist working outside of the U.S. and who works on problems created by or associated with poverty. In this call for applications, we highlight our concern about the physical and emotional violence, the potential loss of security and dignity, often associated with deprivation. Our 2011 Oak Fellow will
work to promote human rights threatened by poverty. Such rights include but are not limited to: the right to work in safe conditions and earn an adequate and stable income; access to basic food and shelter; freedom from forced evictions; access to adequate health care and medical attention; access to basic services and infrastructure; the right to a healthy and safe living environment, including access to clean drinking water; access to education; freedom from discrimination based on class or income.

The 2011 fellowship will offer a semester in residence at Colby, giving respite from front-line human rights work, a $32,000 stipend, plus medical insurance, transportation, housing and utilities.

For more information and application materials, please access the Oak Institute's web page ( oak ); see the frequently asked questions sidebar to clarify terms and eligibility. For further information, please contact Director Walter Hatch at the provided contact information or the Assistant Director at oakhr@colby. edu.
