Elbaz Family Post-Graduate Fellowship

Elbaz Fellows

This fellowship program is open to all graduating CMC seniors who are interested in pursuing a career in human rights, Holocaust, and genocide studies or prevention. The fellowship is awarded for one year following graduation during which the recipient will receive funding for a position within a major human rights organization (to be identified by the fellow or through partnerships maintained by the Mgrublian Center). Ideally the position should focus on one or more of these areas: leadership training; project management skills; field work and research; professional networking; and advocacy work to advance human rights.  The fellowship could lead to full time work or preparation for graduate school. The Mgrublian Center will award up to $50,000 to cover living expenses for the one-year duration of the fellowship. Upon conclusion of the fellowship, the fellow will return to CMC to present a public lecture.
