How to Apply

The Summer Institute for Israel Studies uses an online application system. The link will be posted here when the next application cycle opens. To be notified, please fill in our brief Expression of Interest form.

The application form will prompt applicants for the required supporting materials:

  • Curriculum vitae (CV)
  • Personal Statement: This should explain your background and interest in Israel Studies, your plans for introducing an Israel Studies course at your home institution, what you expect to gain from participating in the program, and how your participation will impact your institution. (Length: Two pages or less.) 
  • A sample syllabus: A syllabus for any course that you have taught, regardless of the subject. It does not need to be about Israel. 
  • Two letters of reference: One of these must be from your department chair or a senior administrator promising that your home institution will offer the new course in Israel Studies that you are  developing.  The application form will ask you for the names and contact information for your references; the system will notify them of your request and invite them to upload their letters.
