Human Rights Defender Student Travel Award


The Human Rights Defender Travel Award provides a $500 travel scholarship each year for a student to attend the annual meetings of the Society. This award was made possible by a generous contribution from Michael Cavendish, a Sustaining Member of the Society who is a practicing attorney in Florida and a strong advocate of human rights. As a graduate student, he was first exposed to the link between applied anthropology and disciplines like law, journalism and social work.
