The Rabin Fellowship on Israel and Palestine
The Rabin Fellowship is intended to elevate and enrich the quality of literary discourse on Israel and Palestine on Yale's campus. The fellowship is an initiative of Perspectives: The Yale Journal on Israel and Palestine to encourage Yale students of all backgrounds and perspectives to contribute to our literary forum for dialogue. Successful applicants will publish an article in Perspectives: The Yale Journal on Israel and Palestine, at YJIP.org. Rabin Fellows will receive a $200 stipend after publication.
Perspectives: The Yale Journal on Israel and Palestine is a publication designed to create an inclusive, positive space for engagement with issues pertaining to Israel, Palestine and the region. By welcoming a diverse group of individuals and perspectives into this literary forum, we aim to cultivate and expand healthy and open dialogue on these issues on campus and in the Yale community. Submissions to the Perspectives: The Yale Journal on Israel and Palestine may be academic papers, personal essays, perspective pieces, or artistic contributions. All contributions are required to be respectful in their treatment of other students, perspectives, and demographic groups.
