About the Fellowship
The Ronald S. Lauder Fellowship is an international network of top Jewish student leaders seeking to represent and advocate on behalf of the global Jewish community on campus. Ronald S. Lauder Fellows are driven, with interest in the field of public diplomacy, politics, communications, and other relevant fields.
Lauder Fellows will receive leadership training, priority access to high-level speakers within WJC’s global network, access to insider events at the United Nations and other international bodies, internship opportunities, and other World Jewish Congress resources.
The Ronald S. Lauder Fellowship runs one calendar year, beginning in August. Over the course of the Fellowship, students are brought to New York City and taken on a trip to Europe for leadership training and high-level meetings. While on campus and within their local Jewish student community, Fellows create a personalized work plan, based on local issues, which they implement with the support, guidance, and resources of the World Jewish Congress.
