The Institute for the Study of Human Rights at Columbia University is now accepting applications to its residence Fellowship for Historical Dialogue and Accountability, that will take place in Fall 2015 ( 2 September– 18 December, 2015).

The AHDA fellowship program gives participants the opportunity to engage in training, networking, project work, and academic study in historical dialogue and related fields at Columbia University in New York City. The comprehensive fellowship program provides fellows with the opportunity to hone practical skills in fundraising, advocacy and leadership; to develop a deeper understanding of and engagement with the past; and to foster mutually beneficial relationships with their peers and with international and non-profit organizations based in New York and Washington, D.C.


The Program is designed for NGO practitioners, journalists, lawyers, teachers, social workers, community organizers, and others working on issues including (but not limited to) transitional justice, truth and reconciliation, historical conflict, indigenous and minority rights, social accountability, memory studies, oral history, sites of memory and related areas where historical dialogue is a central component.

Preference will be given to those who can demonstrate an established work record of several years relating to historical dialogue and accountability.


The Program accepts between 7 to 12 fellows per year, and aside partial funding, efforts are made for securing full funding for all AHDA fellows. The full funding fellowship will cover travel costs, room, board, health insurance, a small stipend, as well as all program expenses.


Interested candidates can apply online HERE.

The deadline to apply is 15 March 2015 (extended)
