Wexner receives 5-year grant from Jim Joseph

Twenty-five years after selecting its first class of graduate fellows, the Ohio-based Wexner Foundation has announced a new partnership with the Jim Joseph Foundation.

The S.F.-based foundation, which supports the education of Jewish youth, has made a five-year, $4.8 million grant that will allow the Wexner Graduate Fellowship/Davidson Scholars Program to offer enhanced academic fellowships for graduate students preparing for the rabbinate, the cantorate, Jewish studies, Jewish education and Jewish professional leadership.

In part, the grant will support the creation of a cohort of Wexner in-service fellows, drawing from “high-potential young professionals already working in the Jewish world,” according to a release.

The grant also will allow Wexner fellows and alumni to develop their own projects, initiatives and programs through Jim Joseph Foundation microgrants.
