Who Can Register
The Summer Human Rights Institute (SHRI) is open to students and professionals from around the world with an interest in international human rights law. There are no specific academic requirements to participate in this program. All program courses and activities will be conducted in English, but no language assessment or scores are required.
When to Register
In order to take advantage of the early registration fee schedule and lock in the early bird rate for the course, you must register by December 31, 2018. The final deadline to register is June 1, 2019, after which participants will only be admitted if space is available.
Registrants are accepted into the program on a rolling basis, in the order in which registrations materials and program fees are received. Registrants will receive formal confirmation of registration within 3 to 5 business days of receipt of their registration materials. Space is limited and we expect the program to fill up well before the June 1 deadline, so interested participants are encouraged to register early.
How to Register
In order to register, please complete and submit the registration form. Please note that you will be required to upload your resume, passport photo page, and a current photo, to complete the form. Please have these files ready before starting the registration process. You will receive an automatic email confirmation immediately upon submission. All participants are required to submit a non-refundable $50 Registration Fee on completion of their Registration Form. Please note your application will not be considered or confirmed until the Registration Fee has been paid. You can pay the Registration Fee through our designated SHRI credit card system.
Once we have received both your Registration Form and your Registration Fee, you will receive an email confirming your place on the program as well as instructions for payment of the Program Fee which generally is required to be paid in full within two weeks of confirmation of your place, or your place will be released.
Methods of Payment
The applicable Program Fee may be paid using our online credit card system, or by check, money order or wire transfer. Detailed instructions for making payment will be attached to the email confirming provisional registration.
Obtaining a Visa
The SHRI does NOT require any particular type of visa to attend. The Institute satisfies the F-1 visa/status requirements and Fordham can issue I-20s to support F-1 visa applications for this program. In the alternative, some participants may wish to enter the US as a B-1, B-2, or WT visitor.
