Caravan for Democracy and Faculty Fellowship
Through the Caravan for Democracy Student Leadership Mission and the Faculty Fellowship Program in Israel, Jewish National Fund-USA provides non-Jewish student leaders and academics a fully subsidized trip to Israel with the goal of facilitating constructive dialogue about Israel on college campuses across America. Academics are linked to their counterparts at major institutions in Israel to initiate collaboration, and students return to their campuses with a keen understanding of the unique contributions Israel has made to the world. Upon return, students and academics are encouraged to participate in an alumni network and key leaders are targeted for speaking opportunities with JNF-USA donors across the country.
