Provided by the Canadian Council on International Law (CCIL), up to three John Peters Humphrey Student Fellowships in International Human Rights or International Organization are awarded to outstanding students to support them in the pursuit of full-time graduate studies in the fields of international human rights or international organization. This fellowship is made in honour of John Peters Humphrey, a renowned Canadian international lawyer.



Students in Canadian law and political science (or the equivalent) are eligible to apply for this fellowship. Each year, at least one fellowship may be set aside for students entering a Masters level programme. More generally, priority will be given to students either entering graduate studies or who are near the beginning of those studies.
