Yitzhak Rabin Fellowships in Graduate Democracy Studies at the Hebrew University of Jerusalem

The Yitzhak Rabin Foundation supports two Yitzhak Rabin Fellowships in Post Graduate Democracy Studies as part of the Advanced Graduate Studies Program (AGSP) in Political Science and International Relations at the Hebrew University of Jerusalem. The elite graduate program nurtures future leaders and experts in civics, democracy studies, public policy and international relations. Rabin Fellows will be the next generation of scholars and researchers who will impact Israel’s foreign agenda and a resource to Israel’s public and political leadership.  Created in 2015, the first Fellow selected is Mr. Ofir Hadad. Funding for a second Fellowship was provided in March of 2017. The endowment will assure annual support in perpetuity over a five-year period of study. For additional information please click here.
