Hasbara Fellowships is a leading pro-Israel campus activism organization working with over 95 universities across North America. Since 2001, Hasbara Fellowships has brought over 3,500 students to Israel, training them with the information and tools to return to their campuses as educators about Israel.
The Hasbara Fellowships Israel Training Program is an exclusive 16-day Israel advocacy training trip focused on offering pro-Israel student leaders the opportunity to gain leadership skills, network with their peers, meet Israelis and Palestinians, and travel to significant locations throughout the country..
When they return to campus, the Hasbara Fellows work with their Hasbara regional advisors to plan Israel-related initiatives, build relationships with student governments, learn social media management skills, work with campus media and other student groups, and combat anti-Israel campaigns like BDS and Israeli Apartheid Week.
They receive continual support and assistance from the Hasbara Fellowships campus team in the form of strategic planning, tabling materials, advocacy training seminars, and grants. Through the Milstein Coalition Building grant, students can receive funding to help plan relationship building initiatives with non-Jewish or non-Israel related groups, which is an essential factor in helping promote Israel on campus.
The Milstein Family Foundation also brings 40 Hasbara Fellows to the AIPAC Policy Conference every year. These students are offered the opportunity to network, sharpen their advocacy skills, hear from world-renowned leaders, and reunite with other Hasbara Fellows.
Because of the Milstein Family Foundation’s partnership with Hasbara Fellowships, pro-Israel students receive priceless opportunities to grow and succeed, while advocating for Israel on their campuses.
