Education Abroad in Israel

Students may spend a semester or academic year at Hebrew University in Jerusalem, Tel Aviv University, Haifa University, or Ben Gurion University. Students should take at least one semester of Hebrew at UConn before studying abroad in Israel. 

Past programs and travel that our students have enjoyed include summer language programs at University of Haifa (Haifa, Israel); internships at University of Haifa International School; study in Prague; and trips abroad to the Czech Republic. 

Each year, travel stipends in the amount of $1500 are awarded to students who travel to Israel for summer academic programs.  These awards are sponsored by the Center for Judaic Studies and Contemporary Jewish Life, the Office of Global Affairs, and Middle East Studies. Read about the experiences of our 2015 Israel Academic Travel Award winners who spent the summer in Israel. 

Financial assistance is available through scholarship opportunities, and we encourage students interested in traveling or studying abroad to contact us .
