bronfman-fellowship-posterThe Bronfman Fellowship is a fully-funded Fellowship available to outstanding Jewish students of all backgrounds who are in their junior year of high school. The program seeks intellectually curious and mature applicants with a strong character.

The purpose of the Bronfman Fellowship is to invest in a cohort of bright young Jews who will be leaders of tomorrow in all areas of Jewish and public life.

Included are an all-expense paid five-week trip to Israel and two seminars in New York City where Fellows explore Jewish identity, Jewish ideas, and connect to other young Jews from both Israel and America. No Jewish educational background is required for eligibility. Fellows who are religiously observant as well as those only marginally affiliated with Judaism are selected.

The Fellowships are awarded competitively to twenty-six individuals who will be entering twelfth grade in the fall of 2017. Fellowship awards are based on merit.
