Students applying to study at Tel Aviv University's overseas program through any one of our offices are also strongly encouraged to seek external (non-TAU) sources of funding. For more information, look at the Tel Aviv International website.
Some possible sources include, but are not limited to:
Scholarships of eight to twelve thousand NIS will be awarded to no more than seven applicants. Preference will be given to students who demonstrate a prior commitment to volunteer work addressing urgent human need or human rights violations; have completed national service or its equivalent, or served in the IDF; and demonstrate financial need.
The American Jewish League for Israel (AJLI) offers scholarships for a full year of study in Israel (no short term summer ulpan or nativ type programs). The scholarships can be for graduate or undergraduate students. One must be a US citizen to apply. There is no age restriction for this scholarship.
Each year, the American Zionist Movement (AZM) grants Helyn B. Reich Scholarships to a limited number of American students who have been accepted and will attend one of several designated Israeli universities for a year or semester (preference given to full-year students). The Helyn B. Reich Memorial Scholarship seeks to honor candidates who demonstrate past pro-Israel activity and a commitment to future involvement with Israel and the Jewish community. Financial need will also be considered, though more emphasis will be placed on achievements. Recipients of the Helyn B. Reich Scholarship will be expected to remain involved with the American Zionist Movement following their return to the United States. The scholarship is named in memory of the wife of a past AZM president whose daughter studied at Tel Aviv University and now lives in Israel.
One or two fellowships will be awarded each year to deserving scholars engaged in graduate level, post-doctoral, or independent study to conduct research in the JDC Archives, either in New York or Jerusalem. Research topics in the fields of twentieth century Jewish history, general history, and humanitarian assistance will be considered, as well as other areas of academic research covered in the JDC archival collections. The amount granted will range from $2000 to $5000 per fellow.
Enrolled graduate students on the MA Program in Middle Eastern History may apply for GI Bill benefits or VA Tuition Assistance. The Certification Form must be completed by the applicant and sent to the Office of Academic Affairs for certification and processing.
