The Edmonds Summer Fellowship program accepts applications for two summer projects

In August of 2020, Human Rights Educators USA (HRE USA) lost one of its sustaining sources of inspiration and committed leadership – Kirby Edmonds. As a founding member of HRE USA, Kirby was instrumental in the establishment of HRE USA, directly shaping our mission statement, organizational structure, and most importantly our values framework and the consensus-based policy for decision-making. He served as Co-Chair of HRE USA for nearly a decade.

In honor of his legacy, HRE USA has created the Edmonds Summer Fellowship to support hands-on leadership experience in human rights education and further Kirby’s work to engage young people in building human rights-friendly schools and communities.

2022 Summer Fellowship Projects:

Project A: HRE USA Community Engagement and Development

Project B: Strengthening HRE USA Regional Representative Community

The deadline for the 2022 Edmonds Summer Fellowship is March 14, 2022 at 5 pm ET. Download Fellowship Application
