Scholarship Award

Full Tuition

The program provides specialized training to top graduates from Southern African law schools for careers as impact-oriented public interest lawyers in the areas of health, human rights, HIV prevention, and gender equality.

The fellowship offers a full-tuition grant to enroll in UCLA Law’s LL.M. (Master of Laws) Program. 

Upon graduating, fellows have the opportunity to apply for a one-year fellowship placement with Sonke Gender Justice Network in Cape Town or Johannesburg.

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.

As a condition of the award, fellows will be asked to certify that they will return to 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.
