In Summer 2017, the Tikvah Fund is offering an intensive, seven-week, (June 15 – August 3, 2017), fellowship for college students living in America, Canada, and throughout the Diaspora. Led by preeminent professors, rabbis, educators, and intellectual and political leaders, the Tikvah Summer Fellowship for College Students will explore foundational Jewish teaching, including biblical and rabbinic texts, the lessons of Jewish history, the insights of modern Jewish thought, and the vibrant interplay between Jewish and Western ideas.

Tikvah summer fellows are drawn from elite undergraduate students the world over. Fellows will spend their summer carefully reading classical texts and thinking through abiding questions about religion, politics, and culture. But what makes the Tikvah Summer Fellowship unique is that fellows will probe foundational texts and the enduring wisdom of the Jewish tradition in an effort to address the policy dilemmas and communal challenges of contemporary Jewry. Apply to join us if you want to understand the opportunities and demands of the modern Jewish condition and to contribute your intellect, your talent, and your leadership to the flourishing of the Jewish people.

Seminars will take place at the Tikvah Center in the heart of New York City’s Midtown East district. Participants will receive a generous stipend of $4,000.

All applications are due February 15, 2017.
