The Susan Wakil Fellowship is an unparalleled student political leadership program. Principally, the Fellowship provides a platform for Jewish students to contribute to campus and community life.

The program delivers a comprehensive educational curriculum that provides the skill-sets, knowledge and networks to develop meaningful change. Fellows participate in political masterclasses led by a range of experts in Melbourne, Sydney, Canberra, Washington DC and New York.

The workshops are designed to provide the knowledge and skills necessary for students to successfully execute their own political and social impact projects.

Additionally, Fellows receive tailored industry mentors, from respected professionals in the fields of their interests. After the program, Fellows also have the opportunity to pursue a political or NGO based internship.
The Fellowship is a free program for all successful applicants, this includes international and interstate tours.

The vision of the Susan Wakil Fellowship is to continue the story of Jewish contribution to society, with a focus on the student and campus community. The Fellowship intends to empower a new generation of leaders with this sense of civic duty and the resources necessary to deliver a meaningful contribution to their communities and campuses.

The Fellowship has helped connect the many nodes of active organisations, communities and clubs who are interested in similar pursuits – facilitating a productive exchange of ideas and networks to improve student life.

The Fellowship is an initiative of the Australiasian Union of Jewish Students (AUJS) and is made possible by a generation donation from the Susan and Isaac Wakil Foundation, a philanthropic organisation with a long history of donations to educational programs for disadvantaged communities, nursing training institutions and to the arts.
