Professional Development

UJA Graduate Fellowship

We believe the Jewish community is only as strong as its professionals and leaders, and we believe in investing in their growth.

Every year, we select up to 30 graduate students who are pursuing careers within the Jewish nonprofit world for the fellowship program. Each fellow will receive a scholarship toward earning their degree, engage in innovative seminars, and build relationships with a cohort of future Jewish leaders. Both prospective and current students are welcome to apply.

UJA Graduate Fellowship Program

The fellowship offers a range of scholarships, all of which are intended for students who are interested in pursuing a career in the Jewish nonprofit sector. In addition, we offer scholarships that are specifically geared toward students who wish to pursue a career with UJA-Federation of New York. Scholarship availability varies based on merit and need, and applicants will be considered for all scholarships for which they are eligible.

Fellowships are awarded for a maximum of two years and must be applied toward tuition. All accepted fellows will participate in the UJA Graduate Fellowship cohort. More information about the types of scholarships offered can be found below.
