Hebrew University's Faculty of the Humanities and the Mandel School offer two-year stipends for outstanding students who wish to complete a graduate degree in the Humanities at the University. Students accepted to the program receive a monthly stipend, full tuition, and a private workspace in the Mandel Building. The stipend allows students to dedicate sufficient time and energy to their studies and complete a graduate degree within two years.
The central prerequisite for application is a B.A. degree in the humanities with a final GPA of at least 94. Applicants who do not meet this requirement may apply, and state under the “Comments” section in the application form a request for special consideration and the reason for such.
In order to receive the stipend, applicants must complete all requirements of their undergraduate degree by September 30th of the given year and receive a GPA of at least 94 by the third week of the new academic year. The stipend for the second year of the M.A. will be given under the condition that the student achieves a GPA of no less than 94 and is expected to complete his or her graduate degree within the second year.
Every year, a notice will be sent out at the beginning of the spring semester announcing the application duedate.
