The cost of the Masa Israel Teaching Fellows with the Israel Experience program is only $1,000 for the whole 10-months. This heavily subsidized program price is possible thanks to the generosity of Masa Israel Journey and the Israeli Ministry of Education, that grant every eligible young adult, ages 21-30, a scholarship of over $12,000 to reduce the program’s cost.
The cost of MITF with Israel Experience covers housing in Bat Yam or in Rishon LeZion, insurance, monthly living stipend, transportation, staff guidance, an in-depth educational program, teacher training, language instruction, trips and tours throughout Israel.
As part of the special subsidy for Masa ITF with Israel Experience, participants are also entitled to airfare reimbursement from Masa, for an amount up to and including 5000 NIS (~$1300). The reimbursement will be given upon successful completion of the 10-month program.
The $1000 cost is divided into two payments:
After being accepted to the program, you will need to pay a $300 deposit to reserve your spot within 2 weeks from your acceptance.
The deadline for completing payment, i.e. the additional $700, is one month after the $300 deposit is submitted.
Please note: The $300 deposit is non-refundable. The remaining amount is non-refundable after the July 1st, 2017 deadline.
