FACULTY FELLOWSHIP PROGRAM TO ISRAEL
One component of the mission is an academic exchange where each participant is introduced to, or paired with, an Israeli counterpart in their field of study. During the 12-day trip, fellows meet with professionals and experts involved in government, industry, education, media and other sectors to understand the many facets of Israel’s evolving national and international policies.
Participants also gain a deeper awareness of the many challenges faced by the country and the creativity, spirit, and ingenuity that Israelis bring to tackling these issues. Through extensive touring and visits to historical sites in Israel, as well as exposure to Israel’s dynamic technological and scientific advancements, industry, culture, and life, participants are exposed to Israel beyond what they may know or have seen in the media and can come home to assist with Positively Israel messaging on their campuses.
