APPLICATION STEPS

The Israel Teaching Fellows program is a unique opportunity and privilege. But, like any paid position in education, there are some steps to get there. Here's what you can expect!

1
TAKE THE FIRST STEP!

Applications are reviewed on a rolling basis, and it only takes a few minutes. Yalla, let's go – launch your application!

2
INITIAL INTERVIEW

We’ll connect with you via email to set up a brief initial conversation with a NEXT Coordinator so that you can get to know us and we can get to know you.

3
COMPLETE THE APPLICATION

We'll invite you to complete the full Fellows application.

4
FULL INTERVIEW

Once your application is completed and reviewed, we'll schedule a formal Fellow nomination interview.

5
SUPPLEMENTAL FORMS

You'll be invited to submit completed health forms, a background check, resume, and passport copy

6
DEPOSIT

At this point, you may be formally accepted as a Teaching Fellow and will be asked to submit a non-refundable $300 USD program deposit to hold your spot.

7
MASA GRANT

Complete the Masa grant application, which is what subsidizes the rest of the program cost. The grant application typically opens in late spring.

8
FINAL PAYMENT

The remaining US$700 program fee is due within three months of the program start date. If you are already within the 3-month period, the balance will be due within three weeks of acceptance. The balance payment is non-refundable – exceptions may be reviewed on a case-by-case basis (e.g. medical).

9
VISA

Since you’ll be in Israel for more than three months, you’ll need a special A-2 Visa which is easily obtained at your nearest Israeli embassy or consulate (no cost). We recommend starting the visa application process 60 days prior to your arrival in Israel.

10
FLIGHT

You’re responsible for booking your own flight based on the guidance we will provide. The US$1,000 flight reimbursements will be dispersed after the conclusion of the program based on valid receipt documentation.
