The Open Society Foundations (OSF) have opened up applications to their Disability Rights Scholarship Program, an initiative that provides year long grants for master’s degree studies to disability rights advocates, lawyers and educators.
The Disability Rights Scholarship Program seeks to support people in developing new legislation, policies, and research in relation to the innovations and opportunities offered by the United Nations Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities (CRPD). With the knowledge and networks gained through the program, OSF expect that fellows will deepen their understanding of international law and education, with a focus on disability rights, and gain the tools necessary to engage in a range of CRPD implementation strategies.
The deadline for applications is the 3rd of December, 2018. For more information or to apply visit here.
