Visiting Fellowship in Jewish Studies
In 1986 Yad Hanadiv and the Beracha Foundation established a programme of Visiting Fellowships in Jewish Studies in an effort to improve the quality of Jewish Studies education in universities around the world. Fellowships are awarded each year to scholars in Jewish Studies, who hold non-tenured university positions at the time of their application. Fellows spend a year in Israel, pursuing research projects supervised by a senior scholar. Fellows are required to commit to resume teaching Jewish Studies at a University outside Israel upon completion of the academic year.
