The Nachshon Project for Jewish College Students


Source: Legacy Heritage Fund


We are excited to announce that applications for the spring 2019 semester of The Nachshon Project are now open. Applications will be accepted through October 15, 2018.

The Nachshon Project, an endeavor of Legacy Heritage, cultivates future Jewish leaders by encouraging outstanding college students to pursue professional careers in service to the Jewish community. Fellows spend the second semester of their junior year of college, studying abroad tuition-free, at the Hebrew University of Jerusalem. Together with a cohort of peers, Fellows are provided with an in-depth Israel education, an immersion in Jewish texts, exposure to a variety of Jewish beliefs, and a wider understanding of Jewish career opportunities.

Through participation in the program, Fellows also become eligible to apply for graduate school fellowships in the sum of $30,000 per year. These highly-sought-after fellowships help Fellows gain graduate degrees that set them on a path of service to the North American Jewish community.
