The World Jewish Congress and Consulate General of Israel in New York invite university students at the undergraduate or graduate level to pitch their idea for a campus event, strategy or initiative that takes a new approach to support Israel, combating antisemitism and/or the delegitimization of Israel, or promoting inter-community/faith relations. Students may submit a proposal individually or as a team.
In the midst of the COVID-19 pandemic, each applicant will be placed through an intensive interview process with the World Jewish Congress & Consulate General of Israel in New York, which will select three winning proposals. All three submissions will receive funding and will be invited to join the World Jewish Congress & Consulate General of Israel in New York for a virtual presentation and award ceremony.
Those who submit a proposal will be asked to summarize their idea, strategy or event for their university in three to four paragraphs.
Proposals should be focused on one or several of the following themes: Israel, Judaism, combating antisemitism or anti-Israel sentiment on campus, or promoting inter-community/faith relations.
A strong proposal will include an inter-community aspect in which a different group on campus is engaged through the implemented plan.
Applications are open until December 1, 2020.
UPDATE: DEADLINE NOW EXTENDED THROUGH DECEMBER 6, 2020
