International Courses Program

Campus Building at the University of OxfordThe International Courses Program supports in-person, 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 10 days of instruction.

Grant amounts are $10,000 per class for courses in OSCE countries & $12,000 per course in non-member countries. 

Our grants do not pay for college/university administrative costs, fees, overhead, or indirect costs. Scholars receiving International Course grants are not employees of the Institute and must coordinate hiring with a university.





Please review the Applications tab for more information on how to apply.


This program accepts rolling applications. Apply any time, as long as your application is received five months before your course starts.
