COJECO has announced the 12-person cohort of the COJECO BluePrint Fellowship IX. The BluePrint Fellowship brings together a select group of Russian-speaking Jewish innovators, artists, and intellectuals, to explore the link between personal identity and creativity.
Chosen through a competitive application and interview process, fellows are able to bring their ideas to life and engaged in this community-wide conversation.
Supported by COJECO and the Genesis Philanthropy Group, BluePrint Fellowship offers fellows a deeper historical and cultural perspective on the Jewish people and contemporary issues of the Jewish world today, with a unique focus on post-Soviet Jewry through a series of informal educational experiences. It motivates participants to become more active members of the Jewish community through a personal connection to and familiarity with an array of projects, organizations, and approaches to Jewish community life.
Fellows are provided with the tools to develop successful community projects through hands-on workshops and peer-to-peer review. It also guides Fellows in setting clear goals for project objectives, offers options for achieving desired goals and outcomes, and identifies possible resources that go beyond traditional methods.
