Visiting Research Fellows and Internships

Visiting Research Fellows (VRF)

The Visiting Research Fellow (VRF) program is designed to provide a framework for advanced graduate and doctoral students to collaborate on research with Hebrew University faculty members. Visiting Research Fellows are entitled to a student status at the Hebrew University and a host of student discounts and privileges throughout Israel. These include the use of Hebrew University libraries, archives, and online databases; participation in research projects at HebrewU labs; on-campus housing and health insurance coverage; visa assistance; student rates on public transportation; and the opportunity to build an international network of peers and mentors. Visiting Research Fellows may not enroll in courses at the Hebrew University with the exception of Modern Hebrew or Modern Standard Arabic courses, which require an additional fee.

To be eligible for the Visiting Research Fellow program, applicants must meet both of the following criteria:

  • Be enrolled in a university degree program
  • Be invited by a Hebrew University faculty member

Program length: Between three months and one academic year

Lack of experience is one of the deficits "fresh out of university" students encounter as they seek their first job- but where can you get experience if you're still in school? The answer is simple: Get an internship!

An internship offers you the chance to learn by doing in a setting where you are supervised by a work-place professional and have the opportunity to achieve your own learning goals, without the responsibilities of being a permanent employee.

An internship also offers you the opportunity to work with someone who can become a mentor and help you establish a network within the workforce you are aiming at.
