The mission of AIPAC is to strengthen, protect, and promote the U.S.-Israel relationship in ways that enhance the security of the United States and Israel. For several years, UTK students have shared their voices in attendance at the AIPAC Policy Conference in Washington, D.C. Scholarships are available, as we encourage students to cultivate their activism.
