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