UCLA Law - Sonke Health & Human Rights Fellowship

Awarding Institution

University of California, Los Angeles (UCLA) School of Law


February 12, 2021

Scholarship Award

Full Tuition

The fellowship offers a full-tuition grant to enroll in UCLA Law’s LL.M. (Master of Laws) Program. Sonke will assist fellows with identifying additional funds for their studies (though there is no guarantee that these will be secured). Upon graduating, fellows have the opportunity to apply for a one-year fellowship placement with Sonke Gender Justice Network in Cape Town.

Fellows may earn a specialization in UCLA Law’s David J Epstein Program in Public Interest Law and Policy, Law and Sexuality, or related fields. Through Public Interest Law and Policy workshops and seminars, fellows will meet PILP students and faculty and study the problem-solving challenges faced in public interest legal practice. Fellows will examine the principal skills and conceptual approaches useful to public interest lawyers in the PILP seminar, Problem Solving in the Public Interest.

Through the course Human Rights and Sexual Politics, fellows will interact with students from medicine and public health and conduct legal research and advocacy for Sonke. Each UCLA Law - Sonke Health & Human Rights Fellow will also elect other related courses and author a substantial writing assignment on health, human rights, and/or gender equality-related legal issues facing Southern Africa.
