    The TAMID Fellowship is an 8-week summer internship program that provides outstanding TAMID leaders with the opportunity to work with fast-growing startups and high-profile multinational companies in Israel. TAMID Fellows live and collaborate with their peers from other top universities in a fun and challenging environment complete with travel within Israel, beaches, delicious food, and networking within the startup community in  Tel Aviv. 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.

    If health and safety conditions allow. If not, the program will shift to being entirely remote. The decision will be made approximately two months before the program’s start date. Please note, if this happens, it will affect the types of internships available. Participants who do not wish to participate on an entirely remote program will be permitted to withdraw and receive a full refund for their program fee.

    Acceptance Criteria

    Applicants must be an active member in a TAMID chapter at one of TAMID’s 60 member universities.

    Participants on Onward Israel programs that are run in partnership with Masa may return to Israel on long-term Masa programs after Onward Israel. They may also be eligible for additional scholarships from Masa to help fund their participation, although the size of that scholarship may be influenced by prior participation on Onward Israel. For details, please contact Masa Israel Journey directly at masainfo@masaisrael.org.

    Fellows will live in  Tel Aviv and be housed in either apartment or dorm styled rooms.

    The number of participants to an apartment or room is dependent on the size of the accommodations and number of participants on the program.  While meeting common standards, Onward Israel housing differs by program and even within a program. To learn more about this and other Onward Israel housing details, please visit our housing FAQ.

    Sample Internships

    TAMID offers an incredibly diverse and large network of companies across the entire business spectrum. Whether you’re interested in business development for a travel startup, market research for a biotech company, coding at an Israeli unicorn, or even a shot at a multinational firm, you will definitely be doing meaningful work this summer.

    In the event that the program needs to shift to be entirely remote, there could be additional limitations on the types of internship placements available. Participants will be asked to be flexible under these circumstances and Onward Israel is committed to making sure participants still have a professional and positive work experience.
