The purpose of the Fellowship program is to offer a possibility for human rights defenders at risk to take some time out from their normal work to undertake a project which will further develop their capacities and contribute to the protection of human rights defenders internationally.

Front Line Fellowships will now be offered on a more flexible basis for periods of one to six months. The locations will also be flexible and could include Dublin, Brussels or another venue to be discussed.

Applicants should submit a letter addressing the following topics:

- the candidate’s experience as a human rights defender and details of their current role;
- details of any threats, harassment, detention, ill-treatment or other negative consequences faced as a result of the candidate’s human rights work;
- a proposal of a project or skills to work on
- topics the candidate would particularly like to study as part of the fellowship;
- requested location and why
- period of time required and why
- how the candidate’s participation in the fellowship would contribute to their human  rights work
- how participation will contribute to the strengthened protection of human rights defenders nationally/internationally.

Applications will be assessed on an ongoing basis and should be sent to Tara@frontlinedefenders.org
