The Tikvah Institute for High School Students at Yale

The Tikvah Institute for High School Students at Yale is an intensive two-week immersion in the challenges confronting the Jewish community in Israel, America, and throughout the West.

In the company of excellent teachers and elite high school students from across the North American diaspora, we will ask the most fundamental Jewish and human questions—about freedom and tradition, love and friendship, war and peace, wealth and poverty, nations and individuals, and sustaining faith in the modern condition.

We encourage you to apply to this program and to join a growing network of accomplished students and rising Jewish and campus leaders. Accepted participants enjoy lively relationships with recent alumni and faculty and opportunities to learn with Tikvah beyond the summer. Check out our video!

Seminar topics include:

Europe and Eastern Europe, Israel, Latin America, US-Northeast
Additional Cost Information
There is need-based financial aid available on request, and finances should not be a barrier to student participation. The Tikvah Fund will provide a bus from NYC to Yale University for students at the beginning of the program and a bus back to Upper Manhattan after the program.
