Awards and Expectations

  • Wexner Graduate Fellows and Davidson Scholars pursuing careers in the Rabbinate, Cantorate, Jewish Professional Leadership, and Jewish Education will be awarded up to $30,000 each year for a two-year term, with the possibility to renew for a third year (Fellows and Scholars who are receiving funding through Jim Joseph Foundation-sponsored initiatives as part of their graduate programs will receive $20,000 per year).

Each year of funding is contingent upon evidence of satisfactory academic achievement and Fellowship participation.
