The Jewish community has taken up the opportunities afforded by Australia’s vibrant and democratic society, with its leadership playing crucial roles in advancing many important social and legal movements for change.

The vision of the Susan Wakil Fellowship is to continue the story of Jewish contribution, with a focus on the student and campus community.

The Fellowship intends to empower a new generation of Jewish leaders with a sense of civic duty and the resources to create meaningful change.

The 2017 session will commence in February and will operate from both Sydney and Melbourne. Applicants who are studying and residing in both Sydney and Melbourne are encouraged to apply.




Why Join the Program

The Susan Wakil Fellowship is an unparalleled student leadership program, providing a platform for exceptional Jewish students to contribute to campus life.

The Fellowship will deliver a comprehensive educational curriculum that will provide the skill-sets, knowledge and networks to develop meaningful change. Fellows will participate in political masterclasses led by various experts in Melbourne, Sydney, Canberra, Washington, New York and Boston. The workshops will be indispensable to the Fellows throughout their careers and will provide the experience necessary for students to successfully execute their own student political campaigns.

Fellows will receive personalised mentoring, respected professionals in their field. After the program, Fellows will also have the opportunity to pursue an internship in their area of interest.
