Each summer, The David Project invites student leaders to learn about Israel at its Campus Fellows Seminars. Held at Boston University, these five-day seminars help students to understand the Arab-Israeli conflict and to make the case for Israel on their campuses. At the conferences, students work with David Project educators and campus coordinators to develop the knowledge, context and skills they need to be successful campus activists for Israel. Whether students come to the conference well-versed in Israeli history or are Israel novices, they leave feeling more confident standing up for Israel on their campus and talking to their peers about Israel.
The David Project invites experts in the field of Israel advocacy and research to speak and work with students to update them on current events. Guest speakers have included Shoshana Bryen, senior policy director at the Jewish Institute for National Security Affairs; Bret Stephens, deputy editor, editorial page, The Wall Street Journal; and Jonathan Schanzer, vice president of research at the Foundation for Defense of Democracies and author of Hamas vs. Fatah.

Eligible applicants include incoming college freshmen, sophomores, juniors, seniors, and graduate students, ages 18-26. Room and board included, travel subsidies available.
