Applicants must be active members at one of TAMID’s 60 campus chapters. The experience is heavily subsidized, with flights, housing, and additional programming costs covered by the organization. TAMID Fellows have interned in a variety of industries including finance, software, venture capital, energy, and more.

    Program Cost:
    $1,200 via Paypal/Stripe

    The program cost includes housing, educational program, program staff, medical insurance, partial laundry provisions, and ground transportation within the city of residence. In addition, participants will be required to submit a $400 security deposit in advance via credit card. Deposits will be refunded at the end of the program pending good standing.

    All participants are responsible for the cost and arrangement of their own flights and spending money upon arrival in Israel (including for food). Participants are encouraged to purchase flights with a good refund policy and flight insurance. TAMID & Onward Israel are not responsible for the cost of flights should the program be cancelled or shifted to be remote. Note, participants will be told approximately a month or two before the program begins their expected arrival and departure times.

    Applicants participating in Birthright Israel trips ahead of an Onward Israel program must join their group on the first day of their Onward Israel program. Applicants will be responsible for their own accommodations if there is a gap between Birthright Israel and Onward Israel programs.

    The actual cost of the Onward Israel program is much higher, and is subsidized up to 70% by Birthright  Israel, private donors, and local Jewish communities and institutions.

    Scholarships to help offset the program cost may be available to for those who need additional assistance and meet Onward Israel’s eligibility criteria. For more information, contact Onward Israel or your local partner professional.
