Ulpan Scholarships are now available for European graduate students and early career scholars of Jewish Studies to undertake Hebrew language programmes in Israel during the Summer of 2019. These scholarships have been funded through the generous support of the Rothschild Foundation Hanadiv Europe.

Applicants can apply for study at any of the Summer Ulpan programmes offered by the following universities:

Applicants may apply for up to 1500 GBP toward their tuition and housing costs and, in cases where housing is not required, the remainder of the grant may be used towards travel costs at the discretion and under the conditions of the World Union of Jewish Studies.

  • EU citizens or citizens of another European non-EU member country (Albania, Armenia, Belarus, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Georgia, Gibraltar, Iceland, Kazakhstan, Kosovo, Liechtenstein, Macedonia, Moldova, Montenegro, Norway, Russia, Serbia, Switzerland, Turkey, and Ukraine)

  • Able to demonstrate the relevance of Hebrew language skills to their research interests.

Applicants for Ulpan Scholarships will have to apply BOTH to the educational institution for the study programme as well as to the World Union of Jewish Studies for the grant.
