Israel on Campus Coalition’s Grinspoon Fellowship offers college students the opportunity to support Israel through relationship and coalition building.
What is the Grinspoon Fellowship?
For the 2017-2018 academic year, ICC will select 50 undergraduates to serve as Grinspoon Fellows on campuses nationwide. Grinspoon Fellows will focus on building strong personal relationships with influentials on campus and effective pro-Israel coalitions at their schools. In preparation for the fellowship, students will attend an intensive leadership training seminar in Washington, D.C. this summer and receive year-round support from ICC professionals. Fellows will receive a $1,000 stipend for their participation. If you have questions about the Grinspoon Fellowship, please e-mail email@example.com.
