Study in Israel Scholarships provide $1,200 in funding to undergraduates, recent graduates, or graduate students at universities outside of Israel to support their enrollment in at least one course offered by a college or university in Israel. Courses can be in any subject within the humanities, law, social sciences, or business administration. These scholarships are ideal for students participating in study abroad or summer study programs.

  • Eligibility
  • Program Requirements
  • How to Apply

To be eligible for this scholarship students must:

  • Either be a current undergraduate or graduate student in good standing at a college or university outside of Israel or have completed an undergraduate degree at a college or university outside of Israel;
  • Enroll in at least one course at a university located in Israel. (Note: courses at American university satellite campuses located in Israel do meet this condition.);
  • Plan to take the course for credit (no auditors); and
  • Plan to return home within two months following their study abroad. This is not a program for people making aliyah.

Students may submit an application to this program if they have applied to study in Israel and not yet been accepted to a course or program, but scholarship funds will only be awarded upon proof of acceptance and enrollment.

These are competitive grants. The Israel Institute does not guarantee scholarships to those who apply.

Students receiving Study in Israel Scholarships must as a condition of their grant fill out a pre-departure and post-return survey about their experience.

Payments will be made directly to the student, in two installments. A sum of $1,000 will be paid upon submission of a pre-trip questionnaire and a receipt/bill for tuition and plane ticket (to demonstrate earnest plans to travel).

The second payment of $200 will be paid to the student upon submission of the post-travel survey and proof of completion of the course.

If a student drops out after payment has been made and before the course begins, they will need to repay the scholarship. If a student drops out during the course, they will forfeit the second payment.

Students must fill out an online application that includes the following:

  • A high-resolution headshot (300 ppi);
  • A resume;
  • A current academic transcript from a U.S. university or college showing the student is in good standing (unofficial is fine);
  • An application essay (max two paragraphs) explaining why the student is pursuing a study-abroad opportunity in Israel and what he/she hopes to gain from it; and
  • A letter of admission or proof of enrollment that they are registered for a course that will take place at a university in Israel.
