The International Human Rights Internship Programís (IHRIP) mission and
work are based on the belief that human rights activists have knowledge
and skills, as a result of their day-to-day work, that are important to
the success not only of their own work, but the work of other activists
and organizations, whether in their own or in other countries and
regions. The human rights movement - in specific countries and regions
as well as internationally - is strengthened through the exchange of
this knowledge, experience and expertise. In line with this conviction,
IHRIP makes grants available to human rights organizations in Africa,
Asia, the Middle East, Latin America, the Caribbean, East and Central
Europe and CIS countries to enable their staff to undertake professional
development exchange projects. A project can be: 

* A professional attachment, through which a staff member from an
organization in one country serves as a temporary staff member of a host
organization in another country, acquiring on-the-job training in a
specific area of work or skill. 

* An on-site training, in which an individual from one country who has
particular experience and expertise in a specific area of work provides
training to the staff of an organization in another country. 

* A study tour, through which a staff member from an organization learns
more about a specific area of work or about a particular strategy or
approach to work by visiting and consulting with two or more human
rights or human rights-related institutions in one or more other

N.B. IHRIP gives low priority to support for attendance at courses or
workshops. Proposals for such support will be considered only in cases
where the desired training is narrow in focus and fulfills a clearly
defined institutional need. 

Deadlines for applications: 
  - April 30, 2007 
  - August 31, 2007 
  - December 31, 2007 

A grant covers the travel of the staff member or trainer as well as a
basic living stipend and health insurance for the staff member (or
trainer). Grants vary depending on the location and length of the
project, and typically range from $1,000-10,000. 

IHRIP is unable to support: 
- academic research or study 
- training where the applicant and proposed host organization or trainer
are in the same country. IHRIP facilitates the exchange of experience
among activists and organizations in different countries 
- training projects which are part of an organizationís core work and
are not directed at its staff - e.g., human rights education programs
targeted to particular sectors or communities 
- training for officials or employees of government or
quasi-governmental agencies or bodies
