ADL invites applications to a new fellowship focused on expanding awareness and understanding of how antisemitism and other forms of hate impact Jews with multiple marginalized identities. This year’s fellowship is focused on understanding how antisemitism and racism overlap and intersect in ways that are uniquely harmful to Jews of Color. With access to a team of national experts on antisemitism and bias at the ADL, the activities of the Fellows can range widely – from multimedia projects, to educational materials, to ad campaigns, to academic research and much more.
This Fellowship aims to increase the profile and reach of the work of the Fellows, raising awareness within the Jewish community and beyond of the oppression faced by Jews with multiple marginalized identities. Projects funded by this Fellowship will center and amplify the perspectives and lived experience of Jews of Color who experience antisemitism, racism, and other forms of bias to better inform the work that needs to happen both inside and outside the Jewish community.
Each Fellow can request an amount up to $25,000 to carry out their project to compensate them for their time and any project expenses. We expect that most projects will be completed within one year of the kick-off of the Fellowship. Contact the Fellowship team with questions at firstname.lastname@example.org.
In addition to completing their proposed project, Fellows will:
Collaborate with ADL to convene and facilitate a multi-disciplinary cohort of practitioners to come together to develop knowledge and resources on the bias and hate faced by Jews of Color inside and outside the Jewish community.
Engage with ADL staff and stakeholders, for example, by presenting a webinar about their work.
Share their work in public forums, for example, publishing an op-ed.
Be a valuable resource to ADL team members on issues relevant to their work.
The final format and delivery date of Fellows’ deliverables will be decided by the ADL team and the Fellow.
The Fellows will demonstrate:
Experience conducting work similar to what is described in their proposal with minimal supervision.
Commitment to working to counter bias and hate
A collaborative approach.
Deep understanding of biases faced by Jews of Color
