New Israel Fund sponsors Israel fellowships

The New Israel Fund is offering 10-month social justice fellowships in Israel from September 2013 to June 2014. Fellows receive training in leadership and community development, followed by full-time internships at Israeli nongovernmental organizations.

Fellows in the NIF/Shatil program spend 32 hours a week interning at NGOs active in civil and human rights, environmental justice, Jewish-Arab equality, advancing the status of women, fostering religious pluralism and bridging economic gaps.

Applicants should be college graduates by the start of the fellowship year and must have either excellent Hebrew language skills or good Hebrew with excellent Arabic skills. Living expenses are covered by a modest stipend. Only U.S. and Canadian residents are eligible. Israeli permanent residents are not eligible.

Completed applications, including two letters of reference, are due by Jan. 20. For information, visit or email [email protected]
