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 June 28, 2020, are eligible for the 2020 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.
