1 min read

The Carr Center for Human Rights Policy at the Harvard Kennedy School (HKS) is now offering the Traub-Dicker-HKS Summer Research Fellowship to support research by HKS students interested in human rights issues affecting lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender (LGBT) communities.

The gift comes from Harvard graduate Margaret Traub and her partner, social activist Phyllis Dicker. Traub is president and CEO of Addeso Inc. and a member of the Women’s Leadership Board at HKS. The fellowship will fund policy research on LGBT issues. Applications for the fellowship will be due annually by the end of February.
