Adamah Fellowship: Isabella Freedman Jewish Retreat Center
March

http://isabellafreedman.org/adamah/fellowship

A three or six month leadership training program for Jewish young adults — ages 20–29 — that integrates organic farming, sustainable living, Jewish learning, teaching, and contemplative spiritual practice.  Fellows develop an intimate connection to the New England landscape and its agricultural rhythms. They leave the program with both practical farming skills and a deep visceral understanding of how the combination of soil, sun, water, nutrients, and hard labor conspire to form the sustenance of our lives. They also learn how current modern agricultural practices undermine our planet's long-term ability to support life. In addition to agriculture, Fellows are given the opportunity to learn many other aspects of sustainability in elective courses. Specific courses depend on faculty expertise and Fellow interest in any given ADAMAH season. Fellows receive full room, board, limited health care, and a $500 per person stipend which is paid at the conclusion of the Fellowship season. Fellowship open to Jewish young adults.

http://www.theihs.org/ContentDetails.aspx?id=491

The Institute for Humane Studies awards scholarships up to $12,000 for undergraduate or graduate study in the United States or abroad. Last year IHS awarded 120 scholarships to outstanding undergraduate, graduate, law, and professional students who are exploring the principles, practices, and institutions necessary to a free society through their academic work. Applications will be considered from those who will be full-time graduate students or undergraduate juniors or seniors in the 2011-12 academic year and have a clearly demonstrated research interest in the intellectual and institutional foundations of a free society. Previous award winners have come from fields as diverse as economics, philosophy, and literature, and have conducted research on a variety of issues such as:

  • impediments to economic growth in developing countries,
  • market-based approaches to environmental policy,
  • the role of patient autonomy in bioethics,
  • the legal development of privacy and property rights in 18th-century England, and
  • the relationship between U.S. presidential politics, fiscal policies, and economic performance.
