The Undergraduate Israel Fellowship

The Institute for Israel and Jewish Studies is delighted to offer a number of Undergraduate Fellowships combining support for study, service, or internship work in Israel and an invitation-only educational opportunity at Columbia University. Institute Fellows will be awarded a stipend in support of their program, study, or internship. In return, students become Institute Fellows, and during their summer in Israel will participate in a number of invitation-only educational and social opportunities to discuss matters related to Israeli culture and history. During the academic year, participants will be required to attend a set number of events - some designed specifically for Fellows – which will include discussions and presentations by leading national and international thinkers and writers in their field.

Applications for this summer and academic year are now available. Click for a PDF or Word version.

The deadline to apply is Monday, April 10, 2017.
