New Israel Fund / SHATIL Social Justice Fellowships

Return to Fellowship Search

The NIF/SHATIL Social Justice Fellowship is a 10 month experience where fellows spend 32 hours per week interning in an approved, individually-selected Israeli non-governmental organization (NGO), active in one of the following areas: safeguarding civil and human rights; pursuing environmental justice; promoting Jewish-Arab equality; advancing the status of women; fostering tolerance and religious pluralism; bridging social and economic gaps. Additionally, Fellows engage in monthly enrichment programs and periodic site visits to further develop their understanding of Israel, Israeli activism, and their role as activists both in Israel and at home. Fellows also receive training in leadership and community development.

Award / Eligibility Details:

Because Fellows intern full time in an Israeli NGO, successful applicants must have either excellent Hebrew language skills, or good Hebrew with excellent Arabic skills. Living expenses are covered by a modest stipend. The Fellowship year runs from September 1st - June 30th. Applicants should be college graduates by the start of the Fellowship year. Only U.S. and Canadian residents are eligible for the SJF.
