Fellowship: Goldman Fellowships for Graduate and Undergraduate Student Leadership Development

AJC Goldman Fellowship

AJC's Goldman Fellowship Program is designed to develop future leaders in the areas of international and domestic politics, diplomacy, public relations, and management. This competitive Fellowship gives undergraduate and graduate students the unique opportunity to work in offices domestically and throughout the world - from New York City to Melbourne, Australia.

Fellows work closely with supervisors in a mentor relationship with senior AJC personnel to learn about strategy, advocacy, and the development and implementation of programming. Fellows may also spend part of their time developing an independent project with the AJC office to which they are assigned.

Research and policy work span the range of AJC's interests - from international affairs and diplomacy to interethnic relations and non-profit management. Applicants are asked to select their preferred field(s) of interest as well as any location preferences. AJC seeks to match applicant's preferences with the agency's needs.

AJC Goldman Fellows receive $3,000 for the 9-week program plus major travel expenses. A mandatory debriefing session, immediately following the Fellowship, is held during a week-long trip to Germany.

AJC's Goldman Fellowship Program is made possible by a generous grant from The Joyce and Irving Goldman Family Foundation.



AJC Goldman Fellows are hosted by national and international AJC offices and affiliates. Fellows in 2009, 2010, 2011 and 2012 worked in domestic offices including New York City, Chicago, Atlanta and Washington DC, and in international field offices in Brussels, Warsaw and Melbourne. Placement is a two-way matching process in which AJC offices and affiliates apply for a Fellow, and students for a Fellowship.

Dates: AJC's Goldman Fellowship Program has been designed to last nine weeks. In 2013, for the first time, the Fellowship will begin with an orientation in Washington DC on Friday, May 31st, and go straight into the ACCESS Summit (May 31st-June 2nd) and the AJC Global Forum (June 2nd-4th). Following the conferences, Fellows will begin working in their appointed AJC offices. The Fellowship will last until Friday, August 2nd.

A mandatory debriefing session will take place at the end of the internship in Germany during the first or second week of August, and was a major highlight for 2009, 2010, 2011 and 2012 Fellows.

Stipend: Fellows will receive a $3,000 stipend and all major travel expenses will be covered. AJC will try to help Fellows find affordable housing, but costs of living must be taken into consideration by Fellows during the selection process.

Who Should Apply?
AJC's Goldman Fellowship Program is open to undergraduates in their junior or senior years, and students in graduate and professional schools. Students can come from a broad range of academic backgrounds. Important is excitement to engage the world through a Jewish lens, passion for making a difference, an interest in exploring American Jewish identity, good ideas, and willingness to work hard.

Foreign applicants must already have US internship/work visas to be eligible to participate in US locations.
