Up to 14 scholarships for children’s rights experts!
Target: Graduates, professionals of the human rights, media, NGO, advocacy and the third (voluntary) sector and anyone who uses or is interested in using audio-visual media as a tool for promoting social change are encouraged to apply to the Summer School.
The School selects a maximum of 30 participants.
Eligibility: Participants are selected on the basis of their motivation, practice and commitment to human rights, advocacy and media issues, as well as their background and professional experiences. Gender and regional balance will be taken into account in order to form a heterogenous group.
Language: All courses will be held in English. It is, therefore, essential that all participants understand and speak English fluently.
Certificate: All participants attending the school will receive a certificate of participation upon completion of the programme, including attendance to selected festival screenings.
Selection: Global Campus of Human Rights will review applications on an on-going basis. By doing so, the Global Campus of Human Rights aims to give participants as much time as possible for the organisation of Visa, travelling and accommodation (see also: Practical Information).
Applicant Requiring Visas
Non-EU applicants require a Visa to access Italy. Students requiring Visas usually need to produce an official letter of invitation from the school to the Visa Application Centre. As these are only issued upon receipt of full payment, we encourage non-EU applicants to apply to the summer school with adequate advance and with full payment. Following notification of admission, the school will provide you with an invitation letter confirming that you are offered a place in the programme and the fees are paid.
Visa application process can take several months: we strongly recommend applicants to apply as soon as they receive the invitation letter from the Summer School in order to appeal any refusals.
