START YOUR APPLICATION

The Maimonides Scholars Program is a two-week immersive summer institute for high school students hosted at Yale University. The mission of the programis to immerse students in the foundational texts and great questions of Jewish and Western civilization; to explore the history and future of modern Israel; and to prepare them to be civically engaged, intellectually curious Jewish citizens and leaders.

We are seeking high school students (juniors and seniors) who wish to push their intellectual limits and deepen their understanding of what it means to be both an American and a Jew in the modern world. Maimonides Scholars will study with some of the nation’s preeminent professors, journalists, entrepreneurs, policy-makers, theologians, and civic leaders in intensive seminars and workshops.  More important than any specific viewpoint is our overarching belief that the opportunity to wrestle with fundamental questions and big ideas is a worthwhile endeavor for its own sake and for what it can do in shaping future Jewish leaders. In all topics, we welcome vigorous and genuine debate.

The Maimonides Scholars Program is a partnership between the Tikvah Fund and the Maimonides Fund, whose generosity will allow us to expand our engagement with high school students, and to continue working intensively with our alumni during their college years.
