Applying for Summer Fellowships


IHRP student Meghan during internship










 2021 IHRP Summer Fellowships  

***NEW***As of Jan. 13, we have been notified by the University of the following: To support the safety, wellbeing & academic planning of students, University of Toronto has made the difficult decision to cancel university activity to international locations up to August 31, 2021.

In the circumstances, no IHRP interns will be able to travel outside of Canada this summer.  This includes the SASLAW clinic in South Africa, and all international (including the US) locations for self-directed proposals.  We are still encouraging students to apply and to create proposals - but the opportunity must be virtual based, or done here in Canada.  If you are seeking funding, proposed budgets should reflect the virtual or local aspect of your proposal. 

3 Placements 

South African Society for Labour Law (SASLAW)’s Pro Bono project
Applications due Jan. 15, 2021 (this will now be a virtual opportunity, with possible local Ontario in person aspects)
