Pardes Social Action Fellowship

Grounding Social Change in Torah Scholarship

The Social Action Fellowships supports students that have demonstrated exceptional leadership in the field of social action and change, as students, professionals or volunteers. By exploring Judaism’s rich traditions and texts on social change, fellows are able to ground their actions in learning in deeply meaningful ways.

Fellows help to facilitate students’ weekly social action projects, local speaker events and activities in the broader Jerusalem community. They will also be supported to oversee and spearhead additional social action initiatives at Pardes. 

Social Action Fellows are full-time participants of the Pardes Year/Semester program, with flexibility to attend for the full year or a single semester .

Admissions are rolling, with financial aid priority given to earlier applicants.

All Social Action Fellows will receive:

  • A living expenses grant ranging from $200-$600/month (exact amount determined by financial need)
  • Highly subsidized Year Program tuition: $3,000 discount for those not eligible for Masa Israel Journey funding / $2,000 discount for those eligible for Masa funding
