The United States-Israel Educational Foundation and the Israel Police are expecting to send one policeman/policewoman to the MA program at 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 2019/20 for the purpose of attaining a master's degree in criminal justice, while receiving full tuition coverage and a basic sum for living expenses.
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 nominee will work closely with the USIEF and EducationUSA, to submit a complete application to both John Jay's master's program in criminal justice and the Fulbright Program. The application dossier will include a resume, recommendation letters, transcripts, diplomas and a TOEFL score report.
