JOFA is pleased to announce the launch of its new JOFA Campus Fellowship for academic year 2010-2011. This program will give eight undergraduate Orthodox women across North America the opportunity to become leaders in their campus communities. JOFA Fellows will participate in a cutting-edge leadership seminar in New York City where they will meet and learn from JOFA leaders. The Fellows will work together with JOFA to plan and execute relevant and exciting programming for their campuses. The cohort of JOFA Fellows will form a supportive network, empowering them to effect change in their campus communities and beyond.
The fellowship offers a stipend, JOFA’s financial and organizational assistance in running a program on the Fellow’s campus during the Fall semester, and training for the Fellow to plan and execute her own JOFA program during the Spring semester. Each JOFA Fellow will be paired with a mentor from the JOFA Board. JOFA sees this as a mutually beneficial relationship, allowing the fellow to seek feedback and discuss challenges and ideas with her JOFA mentor and the JOFA mentor to gain insight into the next generation of Orthodox women. Additionally, JOFA will bring all Fellows to New York City for a one-day seminar, during which time the Fellows will meet JOFA leaders and participate in leadership training sessions.
Completed applications must be submitted by September 20, 2010.
