The 2017 HRLA Bursary Scheme is now open for applications.
The HRLA recognises that those without independent financial backing can sometimes be unable to take up internships, work placements and other either unpaid or poorly paid work in human rights law. He or she may therefore miss out on these opportunities and this can lead to their being disadvantaged when applying for jobs within the human rights field. To assist people in this position, in 2006 the HRLA established a bursary scheme to assist law students, either those currently studying (either undergraduate degree, postgraduate studies or LPC/BPTC/Law Conversion Course) or those who have recently graduated, in undertaking such work.
Each year, the HRLA will provide around five awards from an annual bursary fund of approximately £7,000, provided there are suitable applicants. A single award will not normally total more than £1,000. The applicant who receives the highest score for their application will be awarded the Peter Duffy Memorial Award. This special bursary award commemorates the innovative and groundbreaking UK human rights lawyer, Peter Duffy.
The bursary money is to be used to enable the successful applicants to undertake work related to human rights law that he or she would otherwise be unable to afford to do. That work need not take place in the United Kingdom, but it must be relevant to human rights law in the United Kingdom.
The application form, bursary policy (which includes details on eligibility and application criteria) and reports by previous awardees are available on the bursary page http://www.hrla.org.uk/bursary/.
The deadline for applications is Tuesday 18 April 2017 at 5pm.
