Students who plan to pursue a career in North American Jewish Community should apply for a Wexner Fellowship sponsored by the Wexner Foundation.
The Wexner Graduate Fellowship / Davidson Scholars Program helps to support your leadership growth during graduate school. Participating in this program is a unique opportunity for leadership growth for those entering graduate school programs designed to train them to become Jewish professional leaders.
In addition to financial assistance for graduate study ($20,000 each year for up to three years), fellows become part of a diverse professional community that encourages learning about one's self as a leader though interactions with others with different points of view. To be eligible, you must be committed to devoting your professional career to enhancing the North American Jewish Community, be engaged in full-time graduate study starting in the summer or fall of 2013, and be between the ages of 21 and 40.
All Wexner application materials must be submitted to the foundation by February 11, 2013, at 9:00 a.m.
