The NIF/Shatil Social Justice Fellowship is a 10-month immersive experience in Israel, where fellows work on cutting-edge social justice issues alongside veteran activists. Fellows spend four days per week working on the front lines of social change in Israel at a premiere Israeli social change organization. In addition to monthly seminars, fellows will learn about coalition and movement building from experts from Shatil, NIF’s capacity building center and action arm in Israel. The program includes periodic site visits designed to develop fellows’ understanding of a diverse set of issues at the center of Israeli social justice activism and of fellows’ own role as activists and allies both in Israel and at home.
Upon acceptance to the program, fellows will identify the issue they would like to spend the year working on. The fellowship program coordinator in Israel will work with each fellow to find an appropriate placement.
Living expenses are covered by a modest stipend of $2,150 per month for the duration of the program.
