  • Fellowship - Hasbara Fellowships

    Hasbara Fellowships uniquely brings hundreds of students to Israel each year for 16-days of pro-Israel education. The goal of the Hasbara program is simple: to empower a community of pro-Israel university students to have strategic impact for Israel on their campuses. We firmly believe that proper Israel advocacy education is the most crucial component of a successful pro-Israel movement on campus. All other components of success for the pro-Israel movement - including programming, materials, speakers, conferences, relationship building, talking points, etc. - depend on cultivating well-educated student leaders who can plan strategically and execute effectively.
