Costs and Scholarships
Acceptance into the IMPH Program is competitive, but selected applicants from developing and transition regions are offered generous scholarships that cover virtually all costs of studying in the Program and living in Israel for the year. These scholarships cover virtually all costs related to participation in the Program including tuition, living accommodations, basic living expenses in the form of a monthly stipend, medical insurance, social activities, administration costs, and some textbooks. Airfare to and from Israel is not included in the scholarship.
Regrettably, scholarship support is not available for students from high-income countries.
The cost of participation in the 2013/2014 IMPH program for non-scholarship students is 100,000 New Israeli Shekels (NIS). All payments must be made in Israeli currency or foreign currency based on the official exchange rate on the day of payment. This sum covers tuition, administrative fees, social/cultural activities, and medical insurance. (Living accommodations are not included and cannot be guaranteed.)
A non-refundable application fee of $75 US is charged. A check for this amount made payable to "Hadassah Medical Organization" must be included in the application package. Students from developing countries and countries in transition are exempt from the application fee.
