Role Overview

The Springboard Fellowship is a paid, two-year fellowship that brings recent college grads with raw talent, passion, and skills needed to reimagine and redesign Jewish student life to college campuses across North America. Through this fellowship, participants will further develop their talents and use them to engage students in Jewish life.

Extensive Jewish education is not necessary — just an interest in creating a vibrant Jewish community, a commitment to learning, and the desire to make a difference in the lives of students. 

Graduating seniors or recent grads who have experience and a demonstrated interest in innovation, social justice, experiential Jewish education, intrapreneurship, or related fields and are excited to positively impact the lives of hundreds of Jewish college students are encouraged to apply.
