ISRAEL

LEARNING 

FELLOWSHIp: Kol Yisrael

Looking to learn more about Israel, the Israeli people, and the rich and diverse culture of Israel? Join the Israel Learning Fellowship (ILF) to dive deep into the history, society, and politics of Israel while also making new friends and learning from exciting speakers and educators.

Each fellowship will consist of 6 weekly sessions + a requirement to attend one Israel program throughout the semester, and students will be paid $200 upon successful completion of their program. 

 

ILF 101: Kol Yisrael is perfect for those who don't know very much about Israel and want to learn more. This fellowship primarily focuses on the history of Zionism, understanding the geography of Israel, immersing yourself in Israeli culture, and much more! This fellowship is recommended for students who care about Israel, but might not be comfortable talking about Israel with friends or peers. They also might have just gotten back from a Birthright Israel trip or have never been to Israel before.
 

ILF 201: Kol Yisrael is ideal for students who want to dig deeper into the complexities of Israeli society. This fellowship primarily focuses on divides within Israeli society (i.e. religious vs secular), minority communities in Israel (i.e. LGBT, Ethiopian and Arab communities), and issues affecting Israeli society today. This fellowship is recommended for students who have completed ILF 101 (however, not a requirement) and/or students who feel like they have a decent foundation when it comes to their knowledge on Israel.

ILF 301: Kol Yisrael This fellowship was created for students who want to continue their Israel education journey and explore the state from a different angle. Our goal is for students to walk away understanding that Israel is so much more than David Ben Gurion, “the conflict” and cherry tomatoes. This fellowship is recommended for students who have completed ILF 101 (however, not a requirement) and/or students who feel like they have a decent foundation when it comes to their knowledge on Israel. ILF 201 is not a prerequisite and can be taken after ILF 301.
