The HRLA recognises that those without independent financial backing can sometimes be unable to take up internships, work placements and other either unpaid or poorly paid work in human rights law. He or she may therefore miss out on these opportunities and this can lead to their being disadvantaged when applying for jobs within the human rights field. To assist people in this position, in 2006 the HRLA established a bursary scheme to assist law students, either those currently studying (either undergraduate degree, postgraduate studies or LPC/BPTC/Law Conversion Course) or those who have recently graduated, in undertaking such work.
Each year, the HRLA will provides at least one grant of £3,500 and a number of small awards up to £1,500 per person awards from an annual bursary fund, provided there are suitable applicants. The applicant who receives the highest score for their application will be awarded the Peter Duffy Memorial Award. This special bursary award commemorates the innovative and groundbreaking UK human rights lawyer, Peter Duffy.
The bursary money is to be used to enable the successful applicants to undertake work related to human rights law that he or she would otherwise be unable to afford to do. That work need not take place in the United Kingdom, but it must be relevant to human rights law in the United Kingdom.
If this sounds like it could be for you, please read through the Bursary Scheme policy document which provides details on eligibility and how to apply. If you still have questions, please contact us via the contact page.

“The AdR Fellowship has been a forerunner in predictive disruption nearly 10 years ago by realizing that existing interfaith activities could not bring their desired impact to scale.
AdRF’s model combining entrepreneurship with social sciences advocates that doing good while doing business go hand in hand. It helps its fellows learn how to navigate uncertainty, act on future trends and contribute to the emergence of a new economic paradigm.
AdRF acknowledges that the challenge may not lie ultimately in people’s propensity to change, but in their ability to adapt to the pace the world requires”Ariane de Rothschild
Since its inception in 2009, the AdR Fellowship has been passionately committed to diversity, the promotion of cross-cultural and religious understanding, and the respect for human dignity.
