The fellowship is FREE due to our generous partners, Combined Jewish Philanthropies and Union for Reform Judaism (the fellowship is non-sectarian).
The fellowship accepts Jewish teens in grades 9-12 who are willing to work hard and think smart and who will be dedicated to working on a long-term project.
Applications for the winter 2016 cohort will be accepted through December 31, 2015, but the earlier the better as there are a limited number of spots! Please click the "Nominate a Local Teen" button on the left side of this page to fill out an application for the fellowship. Once you have completed this application you will be contacted by a member of the Brandeis Design Lab staff.
