Summer Fellowships

The Klau Center for Civil and Human Rights sponsors a Summer Fellowship, a $5000 stipend for work in a public interest organization that promotes civil or human rights, and/or the enforcement of federal rights on behalf of underrepresented minorities.


The Summer Fellowship will be awarded to one Notre Dame student who acquires a summer internship consistent with this description. Both domestic and international internships are eligible for consideration.

Fellowship applicants are required to submit:

  • Current resume
  • Academic transcript
  • Cover letter describing the proposed internship and how it relates to the Center's mission.

The successful awardee will need to secure a written internship offer from the placement organization. The Summer Fellow will be required to organize a public presentation on the topic of her or his work during the next academic year.
