The Oslo Scholars program offers university students the opportunity to spend a summer interning with some of the world’s leading human rights defenders and activists.
Students are matched with past Oslo Freedom Forum speakers — based on their regional knowledge, language abilities, and thematic interests — and travel to work with their mentors in the field or in another research capacity for a summer internship.
Past Oslo Scholars have spent their summers building schools and educating women in Pakistan, learning about mental health in Kashmir, conducting research on the impact of hate on the mind, planning social media campaigns to foster open dialogue about the Eritrean-Ethiopian peace deal, and much more.
