Academic Affiliates

The Arava Institute’s academic affiliate in Israel is the Jacob Blaustein Institutes for Desert Research at Ben Gurion University of the Negev.

Students from a wide variety of institutions in the United States, Israel, Palestine, Jordan, and other countries have studied at the Arava Institute since 1996. (A complete list of alumni home institutions is available here.) Some of these institutions are academic affiliates, institutions that have pre-approved the Arava Institute. In some cases, this means that students at these institutions can apply their financial aid to Arava Institute tuition.

To find out more about how your Israeli institution can become an Arava Institute academic affiliate, please contact Cathie Granit at Cathie.Granit@arava.org

Alternatively, to find out more about how your American institution can become an Arava Institute academic affiliate, please contact Ari Massefski at ari@friendsofarava.org.

Alumni of the Arava Institute are encouraged to continue their studies through Green Mountain College in Vermont, with one of their many Masters Degree programs.
