Listen to the recording of our information session call for prospective applicants, parents, and educators that took place on October 11th, 2018. Our Executive Director Becky Voorwinde, Administrative Director Ava Charne, and two recent fellows (Mira Kittner and Sammy Potter) speak about the application process and our summer curriculum.

Eligibility and Important Dates

High school students in the 11th grade who self-identify as Jewish, who are from the United States and Canada, and who will be 16 years old or older by July 1, 2019, are eligible for the Fellowship. (11th-grade students who are too young can apply in the 12th grade.) The Fellowship begins the summer after 11th grade. It covers round-trip transportation between New York and Israel, educational programming, and room, board and travel while in Israel. Room and board at orientation and the Spring Seminar are also included. Limited additional subsidies (based on need) are available to defray costs of travel to interviews, to New York for the summer program, and for follow-up alumni activities.
