How to Apply
Due to the pandemic, the 2020 cohort was postponed to Summer 2021 and the cohort is full. If you are interested in participating in 2022, please fill in this brief form and we will be in touch with you next fall when application season begins. Thank you for your interest.
When you visit the application page, you will enter your first name, last name, and email address. You will then provide the usual biographical information. The form will ask you to upload the following items:
- 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.
- Sample syllabus: A syllabus for any course that you have taught, regardless of the subject.
- Two references: You will enter the names and contact information for two references. The application system will notify them of your request for a letter of recommendation. Nota bene: One of the two letters 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.
If you have questions about the Summer Institute, please consult our FAQs.
