JED Fellowship Program

“The goal of education is not to increase the amount of knowledge but to create the possibilities for a child to invent and discover, to create men who are capable of doing new things.”

– Jean Piaget


The JED Fellowship Program is a leadership program designed to help university level students to gain in-depth understanding and connect with professionals in their varying fields. The JED Fellow Program will accept 10-12 people each year for a one-week non-residential program focused on different topics and themes. By the end of the Fellowship, participants will join a family of professionals who they can lean on as they move on in their education and career paths.
