Up to 16 Tuition Waivers for children rights experts!
Due to the global outbreak of the COVID-19 pandemic, we have reviewed the CHRA programme, which will take place in a reduced 7-day format, from 31 August to 6 September 2020, taking into account any eventual measures adopted by the 77th Venice International Film Festival.
Up to 16 tuition waivers are now available for professionals and students whose field of expertise and research focuses on children rights and are, or wish to become, leaders in their community and worldwide to promote and protect the rights of the child through the connections between human rights, films, digital media and video advocacy.
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 on their motivation, practice and commitment to human rights, advocacy and media issues as well as their background and professional experiences. Gender and regional balance is taken into account in order to form a heterogenous group.
Course 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 course will receive a certificate of participation upon completion of the course including attendance to selected festival screenings
Selection: Global Campus of Human Rights will review applications on an on-going basis. This way, 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 course to the Visa Office. As these are only issued upon receipt of full payment, we encourage non-EU applicants to apply to the summer school at least 4 months prior the beginning of the school 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 you receive the invitation letter from the Summer School in order to appeal any refusals.
