UUSC Human Rights Innovation Fellowship – Climate Forced Migration

UUSC invites applications for its 2017 Innovation Fellowship on the subject “Climate Forced Migration.” The UUSC Human Rights Innovation Fellowship is a one-year $25,000 grant, awarded to individuals or organizations, designed to bring about systemic change by creating, nurturing, or spreading an innovation in human rights. For this year’s theme, UUSC invites applications from individuals or organizations working on innovative and rights-based approaches for communities who face the prospects of internal or cross-border displacement due to climate change. These innovations may be technological or financial products or apps, path-breaking applied research, advances in corporate accountability, legal arguments, methods of mobilization, or methods of community outreach. The successful proposal will be rights-based, align with UUSC’s values and approach, positively impact and engage marginalized communities, and provide a new, different, and timely solution.
