International Student Scholarships
The Malkin Israeli Endowed Scholarship is provided by the Malkin Israeli Scholar Endowment Fund. This Fund was created to foster greater tolerance and understanding in both Israel and the United States.
Candidates must be Israeli citizens and must present evidence of serious involvement in coexistence efforts. A maximum of two undergraduate students can be funded through this scholarship at any one time; thus, it is usually awarded only every other year.
The scholarship will provide the resources for tuition, on-campus room and board and a round-trip air ticket each year between Israel and the United States; books and personal expenses remain the obligation of the student.
Dual U.S. and Israeli citizens are not considered for this award. An interview in Israel is preferred for this scholarship.
This scholarship is awarded nearly every year to two Israeli citizens; one Arab and one Jewish. These students, along with the two recipients of the Judd and Jennifer Malkin Israeli Scholarship, bring reality and personal commitment to the campus discussion of peaceful coexistence in Israel and in the world in general.
Applicants must be Israeli citizens who demonstrate strong academic achievement and English proficiency, and have been involved significantly in coexistence efforts.
The Common Application and additional international forms are required; no special form is required for an applicant to be considered for the Slifka Scholarship. An interview by invitation of the Selection Committee is required; these will be conducted in Israel. Dual U.S. and Israeli citizens are not considered for this award.
The Wien International Scholarship Program was established in 1958 to support international students at Brandeis. Today a small number of need-based full scholarships are awarded to outstanding students in a worldwide competition.
A package of scholarship, work and loan can cover the full cost of education at Brandeis. Wien Scholarship packages of scholarship, work and loan are also awarded to very strong candidates who have demonstrated need for only part of educational costs at Brandeis.
