The purpose of the program is to instigate a vibrant community of honors students early in their academic path, who will conduct their work in an environment which encourages intellectual cooperation. For this purpose, students are granted full stipends as well as exemption from tuition, as well as a private workspace within the Mandel building. Mandel MA students also enjoy a unique curriculum taught by faculty teachers as well as guest scholars from Israel and abroad. Mandel students also enjoy special social and academic activities.
An essential prerequisite for acceptance to the program is being an excellent student during one’s undergraduate studies. Scholarship recipients are awarded a stipend throughout the two years of graduate studies in the academic track, whose purpose is to allow students to complete their studies in a timely manner. A call for proposal for applications is published every year at the beginning of the spring semester.
Applications are submitted via the University’s Scholarship and Awards System.
