The Montreal Institute for Genocide and Human Rights Studies (MIGS) at Concordia University invites applications for its John Lemieux Student Fellowship Program for the 2022/2023 academic year. The program offers an opportunity for graduate and undergraduate students at Concordia University to gain an experiential learning experience  and develop practical skills in the field of human rights.

It provides Fellows with the opportunity to learn about and deepen their understanding of human rights, strengthen skills in developing project proposals and organizing events, gain first-hand exposure to human rights mechanisms, and to meet with a wide-range of stakeholders in Montreal, Canada and internationally.

The Student Fellows will be expected to contribute to MIGS’ mandate. MIGS is looking to receive student applications for the following 3 Fellowships opportunities:
