The Pardes Returning Scholars Fellowship is designed to enable Pardes students who have completed a year of full-time study to return for a second year of intensive study that can significantly sharpen their skills and deepen their engagement with the text. It also offers students an opportunity to take on leadership roles at Pardes, as a springboard for future communal leadership.
Strong preference is given to Pardes alumni. Specific Year Program applicants who have recently completed a post-college year of full-time study in Israel may be eligible to apply. Candidates need to display a serious commitment to study combined with leadership capabilities and keen social skills.
All fellows receive a full tuition waiver.
There are a maximum of four living stipends ($4,500/year) that are awarded to the most outstanding candidates.
Pardes students usually rent apartments in Jerusalem. Pardes provides helpful housing resources to accepted students, including a listserve. Click here for more info about finding housing in Jerusalem.
