The UCLA Law - Sonke Health & Human Rights Fellowship is open to African legal professionals and law graduates holding LL.B. degrees classified second class (division one) or higher from Southern African law school programs. Non-South Africans must have a South African work permit. Competitive applicants will also have a demonstrated commitment to health, human rights, or gender equality, and work or volunteer experience in these areas.
As a condition of the award, fellows will be asked to certify that they will return to South Africa upon completion of their LL.M. degree, and commit to a public interest career that promotes health, human rights, and gender equality in the African region.
Previously disadvantaged and South African candidates will be preferred.
