The Institute for the Study of Human Rights at Columbia University is currently accepting applications for the Human Rights Advocates Program (HRAP).

HRAP is a unique and successful model of human rights capacity building. HRAP capitalizes on its affiliation with Columbia University and its location in New York City to provide grassroots leaders the tools, knowledge, access, and networks to promote the realization of human rights and strengthen their respective organizations.

HRAP’s comprehensive program of advocacy, networking, skills-building, and academic coursework provides advocates the opportunity to hone practical skills, develop a deeper understanding of human rights, and foster mutually beneficial relationships with organizations and individuals in their respective fields.

More than 300 advocates from over 80 countries have participated in HRAP since 1989.
