Wexner to Develop New Cohort of In-service Fellows

With a new five year, $4.8 million dollar grant from the Jim Joseph Foundation, the Wexner Graduate Fellowship/Davidson Scholars Program is poised to offer enhanced academic fellowships for graduate students preparing for the Rabbinate, Cantorate, Jewish Studies, Jewish Education and Jewish Professional Leadership fields.

Seeking to expand the reach of the Fellowship and attract talent beyond the academic setting, the grant will support the creation of a new cohort of Wexner In-service Fellows, drawing from high potential young professionals already working in the Jewish world. Additionally the grant will assist in building-up the Wexner alumni community including deepening efforts to promote life-long leadership learning through the development of a comprehensive mentorship program and strengthening their network through effective use of social media and online resource capacity building. Additionally, the grant will enable an opportunity for Wexner Graduate Fellowship/Davidson Scholar Alumni to develop their own projects, initiatives, and programs through Jim Joseph Foundation micro-grants.
