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 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 qualities we look for are an excitement to engage the world through a Jewish lens, a passion for making a difference, an interest in exploring American Jewish identity, good ideas, and willingness to work hard.
