Quill Foundation is an autonomous institution engaging in research and advocacy in India. Founded in 2015, Quill's core work revolves around pertinent issues of human rights, justice, and equity, faced by the underprivileged sections of the people of India, especially Adivasis, Dalits, Muslims, women, sexual minorities and differently-abled persons. Presently, the Delhi based Law and Human Rights Cell (LHRC), under Quill, seeks to examine the many ways in which legal and judicial processes form the context of everyday injustices.
The foundation is introducing a Scholarship/Mentoring Program for young members of society who are academically meritorious, financially week and are interested in doing law and engaging with community issues. Quill fellows will be mentored throughout their LLB program by placing them with rights groups, community organizations, and law firms. The fellows will be trained with a vision to become community resource persons for taking up everyday struggles around rights and state provisioning.
