Join the Fellowship program 2023/2024

The StandWithUs Nederland Emerson Fellowship is a prestigious 12-month program that trains, educates, and empowers student leaders on college campuses worldwide. Chosen from key campuses throughout the Netherlands, the fellows form a network of committed student leaders. They inspire their peers and collaborate with other student communities to run impactful educational events and campaigns about Israel, Judaism, and antisemitism.

The fellows are trained extensively on navigating antisemitic activity on campus, helping them mobilize and confront these issues strategically and effectively. Every StandWithUs Nederland Emerson Fellow receives tailored mentorship from our staff, who have the institutional knowledge to help the students grow into effective leaders and maximize their impact on campus.

Fellows further participate in two transformative conferences throughout the year, along with a graduation ceremony, and continue their training throughout the program with expert-led workshops once every two months.

Upon completing all program requirements successfully, including an end-of-year survey, Emerson Fellows will receive a €1000,00 stipend at the end of the academic year.
