AJC's Goldman Summer Fellowship Program is designed to develop future leaders in the areas of international and domestic politics, diplomacy, public relations, and management. This competitive summer fellowship gives undergraduate and graduate students the unique opportunity to work in AJC offices in the U.S. and throughout the world—from New York City to Melbourne, Australia.
Fellows work supervised closely by mentors—senior AJC personnel—to learn about strategy, advocacy, and the development and implementation of programs. Fellows may also spend part of their time on an independent project for the AJC office to which they are assigned.
Research and policy work span the range of AJC's interests—from international affairs and diplomacy to interethnic relations and non-profit management. Applicants are asked to select their preferred field(s) of interest as well as any location preferences. AJC seeks to match applicants' preferences with the agency's needs.
AJC Goldman Fellows receive a minimum stipend of $4,000 (gross) for the program, plus major travel expenses.
AJC's Goldman Fellowship Program is made possible by a generous grant from The Joyce and Irving Goldman Family Foundation.
