Fellowship for Graduate School to be a Jewish Professional

Participating in the Wexner Graduate Fellowship/Davidson Scholars Program is a unique opportunity for leadership growth for entering (applying this year) or first-year students in graduate school programs designed to train them to become Jewish professional leaders (rabbis, cantors, educators, academics, administrators, etc.). In addition to financial assistance for graduate study, 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. Fellows engage with expert faculty members in the field of leadership education and expert scholars in Jewish studies. Being part of the Wexner Graduate Fellowship/Davidson Scholars Program extends well beyond the 4-year leadership program. Their extensive alumni network serves as a professional community throughout fellows’ careers. To learn more about the eligibility requirements and awards, and to submit the eligibility form for the application for those in their first year of graduate school or applying for the 2014-2015 academic year, please visit, wexnerfoundation.org/programs/wexner-graduate-fellowship/wexner-graduate-fellowship-and-davidson-scholars.

Fellowship for Jewish Professionals for Professional Development

The Wexner Field Fellowship Program is an opportunity for promising full-time Jewish communal professionals, without graduate training for Jewish communal work, who are seeking professional development. In partnership with the Jim Joseph Foundation, three Wexner Field Fellows will be accepted as part of incoming classes of the Wexner Graduate Fellowship/Davidson Scholars Program. These individuals will receive financial reimbursement toward professional development, while also benefitting from the cohort learning experience of the Wexner Graduate Fellowship/Davidson Scholars program. They will 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, while also pursuing their own personal professional development plan. Being part of the Wexner Graduate Fellowship/Davidson Scholars Program extends well beyond the 4-year leadership program. Their extensive alumni network serves as a professional community throughout fellows’ careers. To learn more about the eligibility requirements and awards, and to submit a pre-application for the Field Fellowship, please visit wexnerfoundation.org/programs/wexner-graduate-fellowship/wexner-field-fellowship.

The Wexner Foundation focuses on the development of Jewish professional and volunteer leaders in North America, and public leaders in Israel. In 1988 The Wexner Foundation introduced a Fellowship Program for outstanding rabbinical students and graduate students in Jewish education and Jewish communal service programs. By the end of 2013, over 450 outstanding Jewish professional leaders from a wide array of religious affiliations and professional groupings will have participated in the Wexner Graduate Fellowship/Davidson Scholars Program.
