Food Sovereignty & Human Rights Fellowship! Deadline is Dec. 5, so please act now and share with others!The Oak Institute for Human Rights at Colby College in Waterville, Maine, provides an opportunity every fall for a human rights activist to take a break from the front lines to rest and recharge in the beautiful state of Maine, all under an Oak Human Rights Fellowship. The fellowship comes with a stipend of $33,000, health care benefits, housing, a car and more, such as an office, access to the college’s computer and library resources, a student assistant and secretarial support. The institute always recruits candidates based on a theme, and the theme for this round is "food sovereignty and human rights," which includes the political, economic and environmental challenges of food production and food access by farmers, farm communities and the rural and urban poor.
Are you a candidate for this fellowship? Do you know someone who is? For information, see www.colby.edu/oakinstitute or contact Professor Walter Hatch via email at firstname.lastname@example.org or phone at 207-859-5319.
