Building on our longstanding partnership with Argentina’s Comisión Provincial por la Memoria (Memory Commission), one of Latin America’s premier human rights organizations, William & Mary launched in summer 2022 our Human Rights Intern Fellowships. Thanks to generous funding from our partners*, five undergraduate students received fellowship awards that enabled them to travel to Argentina and spend six weeks engaged in hands-on work with Comisión staff to address human rights issues, past and present. Read about their experiences below.
