JNF Campus Fellows Program


Bring the positive side of Israel to your Campus for the 2017-2018 School Year!


The JNF Campus Fellows program trains mentors and supports pro-Israel students from across the country that will facilitate JNF programs in their campus communities. Our Fellows play a crucial role in recruiting friends and fellow students to participate in Alternative Break, Caravan for Democracy and JNF College Summit.  

Fellows promote Israel as a country working to make the world a better place through Positively Israel and Tu BiShvat programming. JNF Campus Fellows also learn the important skill of fundraising for JNF projects that benefit the land and people of Israel.  


Each Campus Fellow is required to plan and execute at least one Positively Israel program each semester and one Tu BiShvat program in the spring. They are also required to recruit five students to participate on JNF's Alternative Break and five students to apply for Caravan for Democracy. 


Fellows are selected through a competitive application and interview process. Once selected, Fellows are required to attend a two- day Campus Fellows Leadership Seminar in New York City (dates TBD) in the Summer in addition to the JNF National Conference and College Summit in Hollywood, Florida November 10-12, 2017. JNF covers transportation accommodations, meals and registration for both of these events. 


All Campus Fellows are supervised by regional staff from the Israel Advocacy & Education Department. They are responsible for managing a budget, program planning documentation, completing monthly reports and regular check in with their JNF supervisor. Additionally,they will receive guidance and continual professional development by way of conference calls and webinars throughout the year. There will be a $1000 stipend offered upon completion of their work on campus. This will be paid in two installments.
