The Undergraduate Israel Fellowship

The Institute for Israel and Jewish Studies is delighted to offer a unique educational opportunity at Columbia University.

IIJS Israel Fellows will be awarded a fellowship in support of their business-related internships; academic and/or research-based projects; immersive language programs; and/or university-offered courses over the course of a summer in Israel. (Programs through religious institutions are not eligible.)

In return, students will participate in a number of invitation-only educational opportunities to discuss matters related to Israeli politics, culture, and history during both their summer in Israel and back on campus. Fellows will also be expected to participate in an evaluation survey upon return to campus, and aid in recruitment for future Fellows.

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

The deadline to apply is Monday, April 9, 2018.

For more information about the Fellowship, be in touch with Dana Kresel, Assistant Director, at drk2106@columbia.edu or click here for a flyer with some more background.
