The COJECO BluePrint Fellowship is a highly selective year-long program for Russian-speaking Jewish adults ages 25-40 to explore personal and collective identity through the creation of community projects.
The Fellowship begins with a 3-day weekend retreat followed by exciting workshops throughout the year where the fellows meet other talented thinkers and social activists, gain a new perspective on the community’s historical context, learn new skills, and network with BluePrint alumni. In addition to being paired with a personal project mentor, each fellow is awarded a mini-grant of up to $5,000 for the implementation of a community project.
BluePrint projects from years past have been innovative initiatives that impact the Russian Jewish community in areas such as arts and culture, children and families technology, environmentalism, social justice, philanthropy, gender and sexuality, etc.
Applications for the 2014-2015 BluePrint Fellowship are now closed. Stay tuned for the announcement of the new cohort!
