For Applicants

Spending five to twelve months interning, volunteering, or studying abroad is a big commitment. Before you select your program and apply for a Masa Israel grant, it’s important that you learn as much as you can about where you’re going and what to expect – both before you go and after you return.
 
Want to get a feel for what your Israel experience could be? Let us put you in touch with one of our thousands of alumni who can tell you what it's really like.
