OXFORD HUMAN RIGHTS CONSORTIUM

APPLY NOW
 

 

The Hinckley Institute has committed to sponsoring two students to attend the Oxford Human Rights Consortium in Oxford, England this spring.
 

The Oxford Human Rights Consortium brings together students from around the United States to participate in a week-long exploration of International Human Rights Law, humanitarian aid, and war. Students learn from professionals and scholars in the field of war, peace and conflict studies, non-profit efforts, and foreign policy. The workshop is a combination of seminars, working groups, and student presentations. 

This year the Consortium will take place at the University of Oxford, where students will reside for the duration of the workshop – March 20 through 25, 2016. In March, the workshop will be themed, “Human Rights In and After Conflict.
 
The cost of the conferences is $1700, which includes tuition, room and board on campus (including meals), all supplies, and a concluding certificate of completion. Students will be responsible for their own airfare. The Hinckley Institute will award two students a $1200 scholarship toward this experience, and is happy to provide guidance on other sponsorship, travel, or research grant opportunities available at the University of Utah. 
 
There will be another opportunity to attend the Oxford Consortium from June 25 to July 4. The June workshop will be titled, “Religion, Human Rights, and Conflict,” and the student fee will be $2100.
 
 
Applications for Hinckley Institute sponsorship are due on January 16, 2016 by 11:59pm. See the application here. Email Lisa Hawkins with questions.

 

 


HINCKLEY INTERN SPOTLIGHT 

Global Intern Whitney Marley

Secures Job in Parliament


Hinckley student Whitney Marley spent the fall semester interning with the Scottish Parliament. Whitney was such a benefit through her internship that she was offered a full time position in the Dundee West Constituency Office.  She will be employed 50% by the Scottish Parliament and 50% by the Westminster Parliament. 

In the final course evaluation for her internship, Whitney wrote: 

"I cannot put into words how amazing the Hinckley Institute of Politics is. They have opened doors for my future I did not know existed. I would highly recommend any student, regardless of their major, look into what the Hinckley has to offer. The Hinckley has made it possible for me to make a career out of what I was passionate about studying. I will be forever grateful."

Thank you for the kind words, Whitney. Congratulations!
