Welcome to Class 26 of the Graduate Fellowship Program

Posted on Tuesday, June 04, 2013

The Wexner Foundation is proud to announce the selection of Class 26 of the Wexner Graduate Fellowship/Davidson Scholars Program. Several hundred future and current Jewish professionals applied to be part of this prestigious Fellowship and leadership learning opportunity. Twenty-two were selected. Fellows are selected as part of professional career areas including those going to graduate school to become the rabbis, cantors, Jewish educators, Jewish studies professors, and Jewish professional leaders. This year, in addition to these graduate cohorts we have selected our pilot group of three Wexner Field Fellows. Created in partnership with the Jim Joseph Foundation, Wexner Field Fellows are full time Jewish communal professionals who plan to continue to work full time while attaining professional development through the Fellowship Program and their own individualized program.
