Undergraduate Funding Opportunities


Human rights minors and majors are eligible to apply for scholarships dedicated to our students. The scholarships include the Mark S. Rudy Scholarship, Alan B. Slifka Foundation scholarships and scholarships supported by UConn Faculty. Through the support of generous donors, these scholarships assist with the cost of tuition.

More information please contact Rachel Jackson, Rachel.jackson@uconn.edu


The Human Rights Institute Internship Fellow Initiative grew out of our desire to help students find internship placements at premier human rights organizations and respected international initiatives. HRI fellows have interned with human rights organizations in New York, Washington, D.C., South Africa, India, Guatemala and many other locations!


The Office of Undergraduate Research is a resource for all undergraduates in any majors on the UConn campuses. Many of our human rights students have partnered with faculty to received Social Sciences, Humanities and Arts Research Experience (SHARE) Awards, Summer Undergraduate Research Fund (SURF) Awards, and UConn IDEA Grants.
