About JGSI
JGSI is the only national org dedicated solely to Jewish grads.
The Jewish Graduate Student Initiative (JGSI) was founded in Los Angeles in 2011.

Our mission is to support Jewish life on graduate school campuses and to connect Jewish graduate students, alumni, and young professionals to their heritage and the greater Jewish community.

Our dynamic, multidisciplinary programs are designed to instill the Jewish values of ethical leadership, lifelong learning, and communal responsibility in an atmosphere of open inquiry and mutual respect, in order to shape the next generation of Jewish and professional community leaders.  

From humble beginnings, JGSI now engages in excess of 3000 individual participants at 45 campuses nationwide.  All of JGSI’s on-campus programs are run in collaboration with Jewish graduate student associations in order to empower student leaders.
