Every year, twenty-six outstanding North American teenagers are selected for The Bronfman Youth Fellowships in Israel, which begins with a five week, expenses-paid summer in Israel. In their five weeks, the Fellows encounter the land and people of Israel, study Judaism and major issues in contemporary Jewish life, and learn about themselves and each other. The summer is the beginning of an intensive Fellowship year, and a life-long association for the Fellows, which continues through the extraordinarily active, 600+ members-strong alumni network. Applications for the 2013 Fellowship are now available and must be submitted by January 7, 2013.
Eligibility and Deadlines:
High School Juniors from the United States and Canada who will be sixteen by July of 2013 are eligible for the Fellowship. Fellowships cover 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 in New York City 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.
