UW-MADISON TO HEBREW UNIVERSITY
George L. Mosse, a great historian, teacher, mentor, and friend, graced the UW-Madison campus for some forty years, and the Hebrew University campus for nearly twenty years creating a diverse and enduring international intellectual community. Professor Mosse’s bequest makes it possible for advanced graduate students at both schools to study within an international community.
The Graduate Exchange Program allows graduate students from a variety of fields in the humanities and social sciences at UW–Madison and the Hebrew University to spend an academic year at the respective partner university in order to advance their studies and to broaden their intellectual and international horizons.
The Hebrew University of Jerusalem has a student body of approximately 23,000 students from Israel and 65 other countries. The University is ranked 27th in the world and in the past decade Hebrew University faculty have won seven Nobel Prizes.
The Exchange Program covers the full costs of an academic year at Hebrew University:
- Full UW-Madison tuition and fees
- Travel allowance
- A generous living stipend ($3,000 per month for 12 months)
- An additional one year of support at the dissertation level upon return to Madison
Applications should consist of:
- A one-page statement of how the applicant would spend the year at Hebrew University, including the names of relevant Hebrew University faculty members or programs
- Two letters of recommendation
- An official transcript
- A curriculum vitae
