AJWS World Partners Fellowship is a fully funded award granted to recent Jewish college graduates and young professionals seeking an intensive international volunteer service experience. The program lasts for eleven months and fellows live in India addressing issues relating to sustainable development, health, education, community development, natural disasters, and much more. Along with full-funding, fellows will also have their airfare covered by AJWS.
The fellowship incorporates the volunteer experience in India with Jewish study and skill building. This includes periodic study of Jewish texts and traditions that inspire the volunteer spirit. The program intends to educate fellows on human rights in the international context. Fellows return to their local communities prepared to advocate for social change at home and abroad.
