International Courses Program

Campus Building at the University of OxfordThe International Courses Program supports undergraduate courses about modern Israel at colleges and universities outside the United States and Israel that do not have resident experts available. Courses may be intensive or span a full semester but must be for credit and include a minimum of 30 classroom hours over at least ten days of instruction.

The average grant award is $8,000. Grants through the International Courses Program may pay for faculty salaries, transportation, and housing. Our grants do not pay for college/university administrative costs, fees, overhead, or indirect costs.
