Frequently Asked Questions about the Gruber Fellowships in Global Justice and Women’s Rights
Q. Who is eligible to apply?
A. Yale graduate and professional students and recent alumni of Yale graduate and professional schools (within three years) are eligible to apply.
Q. Can my project be research for my dissertation/book project/grant?
A. No. Gruber Fellowships are not meant for research or academic papers, but for practical projects that will promote women’s rights or global justice.
Q. Must projects address both global justice and women’s rights?
A. No. Projects can focus on women’s rights OR global justice OR both.
Q. What is “global justice”?
A. While it is impossible to create a precise definition of global justice, it includes projects that promote the rule of law, human rights, and the promotion of justice in legal systems.
Q. Must the projects be international?
A. Women’s rights projects can be domestic or international. Global justice projects should address justice issues beyond the United States borders.
Q. Can I start my own organization or work on a project solo?
A. No. Because Gruber Fellowships are only for one year, projects are more likely to be successful when they are embedded in and supported by an established organization.
