Each year, a select number of outstanding student activists are selected as CAMERA Fellows for its premier leadership development program and are awarded a $1000 stipend or a free activist trip to Israel and $500. Apply today!
Their fellowship year begins with an in-depth, four day training seminar that offers skill building for campus activism. This includes programs for educating fellow students about Israel. It also offers effective strategies for countering anti-Israel campaigns on campus such as Israel Apartheid Week, BDS efforts (boycott, divestment and sanctions against Israel), and anti-Israel faculty who proselytize in the classroom and the campus square. The seminar provides relevant areas of content, including an examination of the roles the United Nations and politicized NGOs play in fueling anti-Israel enmity.
Throughout the year, CAMERA provides the Fellows with resources for all aspects of their activity, including bringing speakers and sponsoring various events. The fellowship year culminates with an exciting Israel trip designed for interaction between CAMERA Fellows and leading media government, and military experts.
Since its launch in 2002, the CAMERA Fellows program has played a significant role in the development of future leaders in the campaign for factual, fair treatment of Israel. CAMERA Fellows have published countless Op-Eds and letters countering bias in campus, community, and national media. Their collective efforts have yielded hundreds of pro-Israel events, reaching many thousands of fellow students of all faiths, races, and backgrounds. Many CAMERA Fellows have gone on to careers in media, government, and academia.
