About the Fellowship
The Ronald S. Lauder Fellowship Program 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 from August through June. Over the course of the Fellowship, students are brought to New York City and taken on a trip to Europe for leadership training. While on campus, Fellows create a personalized work plan, based on issues facing their campus, with the support and guidance of World Jewish Congress professionals.
