All interested applicants must apply to Israel Teaching Fellows via Masa. The process is as follows:
Step 2: Speak to a Masa representative
After completing the online application, you will be contacted by a rep from Masa's New York office. They will help you decide which of Israel Teaching Fellows' cities is the best fit for you. If you are interested in joining Ma'ase Olam's ITF program in Rehovot, please make that clear to the Masa representative that you speak with.
Step 3: Phone call and Skype Interview with Ma'ase Olam.
If you and the Masa representative agree that our ITF chapter is the best fit for you, we will contact you to schedule a time when we can conduct an initial phone call then a skype interview. Unfortunately we cannot conduct in-person interviews as our offices are in Israel. The interview is a great way for us to get to know the person behind the application and to learn more about your interest in education and commitment to social justice. During the interview we will try to assess if you are suitable for the program requirements and norms. Expect each interview to last about an hour.
Step 4: Decision
Ma'ase Olam will contact you to inform you if you have been accepted into the program.
Step 5: Turn in your supporting materials.
After your interview, you must submit supporting materials, consisting of:
- Health History Form
- Certificate of Good Conduct
- Masa Israel Journey Grant Application - When applying for the grant, make sure to select "Ma'ase Olam - Israel Teaching Fellows" as your program.
Note that no Israel Teaching Fellows applicant is eligible for Masa's needs-based scholarship, regardless of your financial situation. Masa Israel Journey already highly subsidizes the program.
Step 6: Reference check
A Ma'ase Olam staff member will contact your references.
Step 7: Pay the deposit and sign up
After acceptance, you'll have two weeks to make a final decision regarding your participation in the program. At the end of those two weeks, your $50 application processing fee and $300 non-refundable deposit are due. Those payments will be deducted from the total $1,050 program fee.
If you do not pay the processing fee and make the deposit within two weeks from your acceptance into the program, your position will no longer be guaranteed.
