We would also consider assisting candidates in developing a fellowship proposal for externally funded project-based fellowships.
About Women Enabled International:
WEI advocates and educates for the human rights of all women and girls, with an emphasis on women and girls with disabilities, and works tirelessly to include women and girls with disabilities in international resolutions, policies, and programs addressing women's human rights and development.
Eligible candidates will have a degree in law and knowledge of international human rights law.
Experience working on, and commitment to, women’s rights and/or disability rights is preferred.
Candidates should be capable of complex legal research and analysis and should possess high quality writing, editing, and advocacy skills.
Some international travel may be required.
This is an externally funded fellowship, so compensation is set by the terms of the sponsor and not WEI.
Duration of the Position:
The duration of externally funded fellowships are set by the terms of the sponsor. WEI prefers applications from fellows who can commit to at least one year, but may consider a shorter duration.
Please send a cover letter, resume, unedited writing sample, and contact information for three references to firstname.lastname@example.org. Please reference “International Legal Fellowship” in the subject line of your email. We will be reviewing applications on a rolling basis.
