The Wesleyan Israel and Jewish Student Life Endowed Program Fund

The Wesleyan Israel and Jewish Student Life Endowed Program Fund was established by anonymous donors to assist students in financing summer experiences related to Jewish and Israel studies (Israeli history and culture) and/or contemporary Jewish life.

Funds can be used for unpaid internships, educational experiences, transportation, tuition, rent, program fees, etc. Students are discouraged from taking language courses that are currently being offered on campus. Upon return, the awarded student(s) will be asked to share their experiences with the rest of the Wesleyan community in a meaningful way.
