I'm sure some of us could use a semester respite, and the academic world could use a "front-line perspective" :) - Rania ---------- Forwarded message ---------- Date: Wed, 25 Aug 1999 11:09:22 -0400 From: Ken Rodman <email@example.com> Subject: Call for Nominations for the Oak Fellowship I would like to bring to your attention our annual search for the Oak Human Rights Fellow for the 2000-2001 academic year. The fellowship is a one semester appointment as a scholar-in-residence at the College. It is designed for human rights professionals doing on-the-ground work at personal risk. Its purpose is to provide them a respite from front line duties and enable them to communicate their work to the campus community. Nominations should be forward either to me or to the Associate Director, Eliza Deneoux at the contact information listed below. If you have any questions, you could access our web page at www.colby.edu/oak or contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org. You should also feel free to send this announcement to anyone who might be interested or who might know of deserving candidates for the fellowship. Thank you in advance for any assistance you might offer. Sincerely, Ken Rodman Director _________________________________________________________________ OAK HUMAN RIGHTS FELLOWSHIP The Oak Institute for the Study of International Human Rights at Colby College is pleased to issue a call for nominations for the Oak Human Rights Fellowship. The Oak Institute was made possible through a major grant from the Oak Foundation and, each year, sponsors a Fellow to teach and conduct research while in residence at Colby. The purpose of the fellowship is to offer an opportunity for prominent practitioners in international human rights to take a sabbatical leave from their work and spend a period of up to a semester as a scholar-in-residence at the College. This provides the Fellow time for reflection, research, and writing. While all human rights practitioners are eligible, we especially encourage applications from those who are currently or were recently involved in "on-the-ground" work at some level of personal risk. The Oak Fellow's responsibilities include regular meetings with students either through formal classes or informal discussion groups and assistance in shaping a lecture series or symposium associated with the particular aspect of human rights of interest to the fellow. The fellow also is expected to participate in the intellectual life of the campus and enable our students to work or study with a professional in the human rights field. The Fellow will receive a stipend and College fringe benefits, plus round-trip transportation from the fellow's home site, housing for a family, use of a car, and meals on campus. The Fellow will also receive research support, including office space, secretarial support, computer and library facilities, and a student assistant. Nominations for Oak Fellows for the 2000-01 academic year should be sent to Professor Kenneth Rodman, Government Department, Colby College, Waterville, Maine 04901 (fax: 207-872-3263/3473; phone: 207-872-3813/3270; e-mail: email@example.com) no later than November 1, 1999. Completed applications must arrive no later than November 8, 1999. Information and application forms are available on the institute's World Wide Web site at www.colby.edu/oak. The selection of the Oak Fellow will be announced by February 1, 2000.
