Association of
Jewish Students

The academic and pre-professional home of Jewish students at universities across the world.

A snapshot of our mission

Founded by students, for students

We are a secular club, built from the active participation of students from all religious, color, racial, socioeconomic, national origin and gender identities. We create a space for students of all academic disciplines to engage in academic and pre-professional programming alongside Jewish students.

On campus, the AJS hosts workshops highlighting secular Jewish figures innovating across academia, the public and private sectors, public lecture series, book clubs, and more, all with the goal of creating an environment where the all students can interface with Jewish students in a structured, academic and professional setting.

Outside of campus, AJS students of all faiths have opportunities to meet with geopolitical leaders in Israel and the middle-east, brainstorming solutions for peace on completely subsidized travel programs through a collaboration offered by the Jewish National Fund (JNF).


In proud collaboration with the Jewish National Fund (JNF), the AJS is bringing highly-subsidized pre-professional, leadership and volunteer travel programs to AJS students of all faiths and regions across the world.

The flagship trip, "The Caravan for Democracy", is a 10-day, fully subsidized trip where student leaders beyond the Jewish faith are challenged to innovate solutions in the geopolitical climate of Israel and the middle-east.
