Israel Government Fellows

The Israel Government Fellows Program (IGF) is a Menachem Begin Heritage Center initiative in affiliation with Masa. The program is endorsed by the Office of the Prime Minister in Israel and offers outstanding and highly motivated young Jewish leaders an experience at the heart of the Israeli government. Alongside internships in government offices and policy and diplomacy organizations, the program provides educational seminars, Hebrew language instruction and tours around the country. It is the only existing program of its kind for non-Israelis and is available for young Jews aged 22-30 with at least a first degree.


The program’s duration is ten months and is based in Jerusalem. As well as working closely with a government official in a Ministry or other government branch, participants will attend weekly seminars as well as joint activities with Israeli counterparts. They will travel throughout the country, and will meet with Israeli officials, policy makers, journalists, and a wide range of public figures.
