American Jewish World Service (AJWS) has announced its new Presidential Fellowship. The twelve-month, highly competitive fellowship offers a recent college graduate the unique opportunity to accompany AJWS president, Ruth Messinger, on her professional travel, including speaking engagements in Jewish communities throughout North America (and, possibly, international travel associated with conferences, study tours or service trips).
The Presidential Fellow will work in AJWS’s Department of Education and Community Engagement to help expand and deepen AJWS’s relationships within the North American Jewish community. While traveling with Messinger, the fellow will collect data about communities, record community requests for further programming, explore new ways to connect with constituents and identify new partnership opportunities to strengthen AJWS’s mission to make global justice a focus of American Jewish life and identity.
Applications for the Presidential Fellowship are due no later than Sunday, May 23rd. A complete job description is available here.
