Tikvah Overseas Institute 2019-2020
The Tikvah Overseas Student Institute invites gap-year students studying in Israel to apply for a series of seminars sponsored by the Tikvah Fund. The educational programs that make up the institute supplement gap-year curricula by providing intimate settings for interdisciplinary study, dialogue, and camaraderie with other select students. By exposing our participants to great texts, intellectuals, and activists, the institute aims to inspire the next generation of thinkers who can lead the Jewish community, informed by Jewish values and ideas, as we confront the great questions of our times.
In the 2019-2020 academic year, TOS features two types of programs, each addressing a unique set of dilemmas through different formats. Students may only enroll in one program but can apply for one or both programs and express their preferred track.
