Deadline: late January
Funding available to U-M graduate students in social work and other areas of study interested in addressing, evaluating or improving global labor standards and monitoring.
This internship award provides financial and logistical support of $5500 to internships focused broadly on addressing, evaluating or improving global labor standards and monitoring. The University of Michigan President's Advisory Committee on Labor Standards and Human Rights (PACLSHR) helps support internships that contribute to the University's effort to improve international labor standards.
Students are responsible for sourcing their own projects, but some connections to organizations and help can be provided. Past examples of projects include students working with local human services and legal services organizations, the UNDP, ILO, UNICEF, World Bank, government agencies and private human rights organizations with a wide variety of concerns (e.g. women's justice issues, juvenile law, labor disputes, land rights, health care, economic development, land management, etc.).
Internship length should be at least 10 weeks with flexible start and end dates. The award will cover the costs of airfare, housing, visa fees, immunizations, international health insurance and a living stipend that is intended to cover meals, ground transportation, and incidentals. This internship does not pay a salary.
