The Scholars in Residence are academics and practitioners from around the world who are engaged in critical and innovative research in the fields of human rights and global justice. Scholars spend up to one year in residence at the Center, working on research projects that relate to one of our areas of work. 

The application cycle for 2024-2025 is now closed. 

Recruitment for the following cycle will begin in the Fall semester. 

The Center accepts up to three fellows per year through New York University’s Hauser Global Law School Program. Fellows interested in applying for this opportunity should refer to the program’s guidelines, funding deadlines, and application process and indicate their interest in being housed at the Center.

Scholars at Risk Network is an international network of higher education institutions working to promote academic freedom and to defend threatened scholars worldwide. NYU School of Law offers the option of hosting at-risk scholars for a short-term, temporary visiting position at the Center for a semester or an academic year. 

Applications to invite for sponsorship as visiting fellow through this program will be submitted by the Center based on nominations received. Nominations will be accepted on a rolling basis until available funds are committed. The fellowships are provided by the Provost’s Office, thanks to the generous support of the Vivian G. Prins Foundation, to support the work of the Scholars at Risk Network.
