2017 International Summer Science Insitute

The Weizmann Institute of Science in Israel holds its International Summer Science Institute (ISSI) for high school graduates again in July.  This brings together over 80 students from around the world.  This year the prestigious student program will be held over the month of July and Weizmann Australia is pleased to offer two places for Australian students, thanks to the generosity of the Trawalla Foundation, supporting the program again this year.

Last year we sent  Cherry Zheng and Matthew Goh to Israel and you can read their story here.

APPLY

To apply for the 2017 program the applicant – who must be a high school graduate who completed year 12 in 2016 – should submit:

  • Short, descriptive bio
  • Full academic transcripts from Year 12
  • Letter describing why you would like to have this opportunity
  • Reference letter from a senior high school teacher

A short-list of applicants will be determined and interviews will be scheduled shortly thereafter.

Application deadline is Friday 9 April.

The scholarship covers the full program tuition and touring experience, on-campus housing, and full board.  It also includes most (but possibly not all) of the return travel costs between Israel and Australia.

Please email your application to hello@weizmann.org.au – good luck!
