Apply: Open Society Internship for Rights & Governance
Application page: https://osirg.submittable.com/submit
Deadline: November 27, 5pm
Apply now to the Open Society Internship for Rights & Governance (OSIRG).
OSIRG is specifically tailored to invest in the next generation of leaders in human rights and governance that is inclusive of promoting fundamental freedoms, expanding public access to information, challenging inequalities through development and rights, and advancing approaches to ensuring transparency and accountability in a global context.
OSIRG allows students to immerse themselves in the ideas and practice of open society by participating in a clinical seminar held at SPP at Central European University in Budapest, Hungary from 11 June to 24 June 2018.
The seminar is followed by an 8- or 12-week intensive internship either at a OSF-selected non-governmental organization, where students will complete a project developed by one of OSIRG’s partner host institutions or, if the student applies via the collaboration track, at an organization where the student has an existing relationship and a clearly defined project which has been accepted by the organization and OSF.
