START YOUR APPLICATION

The Maimonides Scholars Program is a two-week immersive summer institute for advanced high school students hosted at Yale University. The mission of the program is to enrich our students’ connections with the foundational texts and great questions of the Jewish and Western philosophical traditions and to prepare students to be civically engaged, intellectually curious Jewish citizens and leaders.

Maimonides Scholars will be rising seniors from diverse Jewish backgrounds 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. Accepted students will study with some of the nation’s preeminent professors, authors, theologians, and civic leaders in intensive seminars and workshops. More important than our specific viewpoints 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 which we feel is too often lacking in traditional secular and religious education.

The Maimonides Scholars Program is the result of a partnership between the Tikvah Institute 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.
