Founded in 2007 with a generous grant from Los Angeles philanthropists Rita and Steve Emerson, the StandWithUs Emerson Fellowship is a prestigious one-year program that recruits, trains, educates, and inspires pro-Israel student leaders on campuses throughout the United States, Canada, the United Kingdom, and Brazil. Chosen from over 150 campuses, they form a network of trained pro-Israel student leaders who inspire their peers and collaborate with other student communities to run effective educational events about Israel. Every StandWithUs Emerson Fellow receives tailored mentorship from regionally based staff who have the institutional knowledge needed to help these students grow into effective leaders.

Upon completion of the program, StandWithUs Emerson Fellows have an opportunity to continue their leadership engagement with StandWithUs by applying to become a StandWithUs Campus Liaison, responsible for mentoring and training other regional student leaders and playing an important role with our training conferences. For more information, contact us at  


Alumni of our program are also inducted into the StandWithUs Emerson Fellowship Alumni Network, which offers opportunities for former fellows to stay connected to StandWithUs and to each other. Through our various committees, cohort ambassadors, and our newsletter, alumni will be able to continue their Israel education and activism, stay up to date with StandWithUs national and local events, make new friends, get paired with a mentor or mentee in their fields, join regional StandWithUs boards, find job opportunities, and so much more.
