The Wexner Foundation has announced the inaugural cohort of the newly-expanded Wexner Field Fellowship. Built on the success of the pilot Wexner Field Fellowship, incubated within the Wexner Graduate Fellowship, the program was developed in partnership with the Jim Joseph Foundation.
Fifteen outstanding professionals were selected through a highly-competitive process for this three-year intensive program. Utilizing the cohort-based learning that is the hallmark of Wexner Foundation programs, Field Fellows will be exposed to different approaches to leadership and tools for addressing pressing issues in the Jewish community, while being integrated into The Wexner Foundation’s vast network of professional and volunteer leaders in North America and Israel, including the ten outstanding professionals in the pilot Field Fellowship Program.
Field Fellows will attend two institutes each year to deepen their leadership skills and develop a rich community of colleagues. Fellows will receive intensive individualized professional coaching and Jewish education based on each Fellow’s specific needs. They will also benefit from access to funds to pursue additional personally customized professional development opportunities.
The Wexner Foundation joins other organizations including Leading Edge, The Charles and Lynn Schusterman Family Foundation and UJA-Federation of New York, all of whom have made it a priority to invest in emerging professionals.
Applications for the second class of Wexner Field Fellows will open this summer. For more information, please visit www.wexnerfoundation.org/wff or contact Ruthie Warshenbrot, Program Director at The Wexner Foundation.
