FAQ’s for Wexner Israel Fellowship Program Candidates
When should I submit my Eligibility Form?
Candidates are strongly encouraged to submit their Eligibility Form as early as possible. This is important in order to enable enough time to work on your essays and complete your full Application Form.
It is also recommended that candidates register for the TOEFL/ IELTS test as early as possible.
Can I submit the Eligibility Form without an actual TOEFL/ IELTS / GRE score?
Yes, you can.
I'm not sure whether or not I should take the TOEFL / IELTS test. Whom should I ask?
Please contact the HKS admission's office directly by email Admissions@hks.harvard.edu with your question.
If you are exampt by Harvard from taking the TOEFL/IELTS tests please let The Foundation know as soon as possible.
I'm a civil servant and I'm not sure if I have the 5 years experience required by the Civil Service. Where and how do I find that out?
Please be in direct contact with the human resources department in your office regarding this question.
If I choose to re-apply to the program, can I use my earlier Eligibility and/or Application Forms?
Candidates who re-apply will need to fill out the forms once again, though they may base their answers on the material they have already submitted to the Foundation. We require this because forms may change from year to year.
Can members of the same family apply for the program?
Members of the same family can apply for the Fellowship, however, the Fellowship will be awarded to only one family member per current academic year.
Does IDF military service count for the 7 years of experience required by the Foundation?
Only when referring to a professional military career. Mandatory service, including additional service as an officer (קבע ראשון לקצינים ו/או נגדים), will not be considered as experience in the public sector.
