The Wexner Foundation has announced Class 32 of the Wexner Graduate Fellowship/Davidson Scholars Program. As these exceptional individuals pursue graduate training for careers in Jewish Education, Jewish Professional Leadership, Jewish Studies and the Rabbinate/Cantorate, they will participate in a prestigious four-year professional development program comprised of leadership training, cohort-based learning, peer support, professional mentoring and networking, developed in partnership with the William Davidson Foundation.
Twenty outstanding students were selected through a highly competitive process for this four-year intensive program. Utilizing the diverse, cohort-based learning that is the hallmark of The Wexner Foundation programs, Wexner Graduate Fellows/Davidson Scholars 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 more than 3,000 professional and volunteer leaders in North America and Israel, including the 60 outstanding professionals who are currently in the Wexner Graduate Fellowship/Davidson Scholars Program.
These exceptional candidates have exhibited a strong personal commitment to the Jewish community, a record of demonstrated excellence in academic achievement and the potential to assume significant professional leadership roles in the North American Jewish community. In addition to receiving generous funding, all Fellows are afforded unique opportunities for ongoing interaction with outstanding Jewish leaders and for extensive collaboration with one another. All Fellows will participate in four years of Fellowship-wide Institutes and gatherings, building a cohesive community of Fellows while enhancing their individual leadership skills. Fellows receive leadership training, peer support, professional mentoring and networking across career choices and denominational affiliates, both during school and throughout their lives.
