Fulbright – Israel Police – John Jay Master's Degree Fellowships

Program overview

The United States-Israel Educational Foundation (Fulbright) and the Israel Police are expecting to send one policeman/policewoman to the joint program with the City University of New York's John Jay College. As a program fellow, the selected policeman/policewoman will take a year-long paid leave for the duration of the academic year 2018/19 for the purpose of attaining a master's degree in criminal justice, while receiving full tuition coverage and a basic sum for living expenses. Among the other participants of the program are policemen/policewomen from all across the United States and the world.

The purpose of the program is to make a long-term investment in strengthening the senior command reserves of the Israel Police.

Participation in the program is conditional upon the approval of commanders and the Israel Police. Policemen/Policewomen who are interested in applying will do so in the chain of command, via their units' education or HR officers, and according to their instuctions.

Following the interviewing stage by the selection committee, the selected policeman/policewoman will work closely with United States-Israel Educational Foundation and EducationUSA, will collect materials, write essays and take tests for the purpose of submitting a complete application to both John Jay's master's program in criminal justice and the Fulbright Program. The application dossier will include forms, resume, recommendations, transripts, diplomas, and TOEFL score report – all of which in English. At a later stage, a comprehensive medical form filled by a doctor will also be required.
