2023 O'Brien Graduate Fellowships - Call for applications

The O’Brien Graduate Fellowships were established in 2005 through a very generous gift from David O’Brien for outstanding Masters or Doctoral students studying in the area of human rights and legal pluralism in the Faculty of Law, McGill University.

O’Brien Fellows become members of the Centre for Human Rights and Legal Pluralism, a focal point for innovative legal and interdisciplinary research, dialogue, and outreach on human rights and legal pluralism. The Fellowships for LLM students are valued at up to a maximum of $25,000 per annum, tenable for 1 year. For DCL students the Fellowships are valued at $35,000 per annum, renewable twice (if eligibility is maintained).

This Fellowship Program is an entrance scholarship. Applicants for this scholarship must also simultaneously submit an application for admission to one of our graduate programs by the stipulated deadline. More information on the Fellowship program and current graduate fellows is available on our website.

If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact me. Thank you in advance for your assistance.
