The Schusterman Center for Israel Studies, dedicated to promoting exemplary teaching and scholarship in Israeli history, politics, culture, and society, is nurturing the next generation of Israel scholars. Full and partial fellowships are granted on a competitive basis to doctoral students who have been accepted into the Graduate School of Arts and Sciences, and who are focusing on Israel Studies in fields such as history, sociology, politics, Middle East studies, Israeli art, literature and culture. The fellowships—granted through individual departments—are renewable, after review, for up to five years. The Schusterman Scholar Fellowship includes a full tuition scholarship, health care benefits, and a stipend of up to $36,000 per year for new incoming students. Come study with our esteemed faculty, and join a welcoming and stimulating intellectual community that is shaping the future of Israel Studies.
