The deadline to apply is April 9, 2024

For 2024, please note that, due to heightened security concerns: 
1. Disbursement of grant funds will be contingent on University approval for the grantee's travel plans. The Schusterman Center will facilitate the approval request process. 
2. Grantees will be responsible for covering a $54/day travel insurance supplement, and can opt to apply their grant funds toward that expense, if they choose.  

The Frances Taylor Eizenstat '65 Israel Travel Grants are competitive grants of up to $2,500 each, awarded to students from any Brandeis department pursuing academic or career interests in Israel.

The program was established in 2013 in memory of Frances Taylor Eizenstat '65, a Brandeis alumna who first visited Israel through the Brandeis Hiatt program in 1963.

This wide-reaching grant covers academic pursuits in science and business, as well as social sciences, humanities and arts. It was created to provide impetus for students to travel to Israel to learn Hebrew, intern in social justice projects, NGOs, Israeli companies and laboratories, participate in research projects from archaeology to contemporary issues, engage in professional training, conduct a senior thesis project, or join academic programs such as Brandeis study abroad.
