Hillel Int’l fellowships to train young Jewish professionals

(JTA) — A new Hillel International project will send hundreds of recent college graduates to campuses nationwide for training as Jewish professionals. The two-year Springboard Fellowships will see the placement of 500 fellows in the first five years. The program is part of the organization’s Drive to Excellence initiative to increase student engagement in Hillel on college campuses. The fellowship is scheduled to begin this fall with 20 fellows. The fellows will be jointly funded by Hillel International and by the Hillel campuses they serve. The Springboard Fellowships are an outgrowth of the Steinhardt Jewish Campus Service Corps Fellowship that Hillel ran from 1994 to 2008.
