The Anna Sobol Levy Foundation provides fellowships of $12,000 per year for one or two years of study at the Rothberg International School of the Hebrew University of Jerusalem.

The purpose of this fellowship is to provide future U.S. leaders considering military or government service an opportunity to learn first-hand about Middle-East regional politics, culture, and security affairs and to study foreign languages.  Fellows gain direct exposure to Israel's unusually challenging defense and security situation and to Israel's approaches to counter-terrorism and low-intensity conflict, through special activities including briefings and visits to Israeli military bases.  Fellows may select from a wide variety of courses and are entitled to a private tutorial with a Hebrew University faculty member.

Candidates must be U.S. citizens under age 30 at the time application and should have studied in the fields of military studies, economic geography, international relations, political science, or history.  In addition, they must have career goals in the armed services, diplomatic corps, international relations, or government or public service.  Recent college graduates (including those who will receive their undergraduate degree by May of the current year) and students currently enrolled in graduate programs are encouraged to apply.
