The cost of the program is $15,000.
Most Fellows are eligible for a grant from MASA. (The precise amount of the MASA grant is according to country of origin and other criteria - see website for further information: www.masaisrael.org. Please note also that MASA only provide a grant to each individual once in their lifetime. This means that you will be unable to receive a MASA grant for this program if you have already received MASA funding for something previously).
The MASA grant application also contains the option of requesting a further ‘scholarship’. This is "needs-based" therefore only some applicants will be successful in receiving this in addition to the grant.
The cost of the program includes housing in modern student apartments in Jerusalem. Candidates are permitted to arrange their own housing independently of the program, in which case the cost will drop to $11,000.
All Fellows also recieve an automatic $2,000 grant from the Begin Center.
