Monthly Fellowships for MSc Students
Full-time MSc students at the Feinberg Graduate School are entitled to a monthly fellowship for 24 months. If you receive the fellowship, you are expected to devote all of your time to studies and scientific research (the rates below will be in effect starting October 2015).
One Fellowship Level
The monthly fellowship paid to MSc students is NIS 5,930. This amount is not dependent on your field of research, marital status, location of residence or any other criteria.
Termination of Fellowship Payment
- When you complete your studies, the fellowship stops immediately. You can receive the fellowship for a maximum of two academic years.
- If you begin working and earning a salary, your fellowship payments cease. In such instances, you are required to notify your faculty coordinator at the Feinberg Graduate School.
- If you receive approval to postpone the submission of your thesis, the Dean of the Feinberg Graduate School will determine whether you can continue to receive financial support during the additional time period, or only for part of it. This decision is made on an individual basis. If the Dean approves the extension of your financial support, you can continue to receive the funding for an additional period of up to three months.
- Likewise, if you are on maternity leave, military reserve duty or suffering from a prolonged illness, you may also be entitled to receive extended support for an additional period of up to three months (up to 27 months in total).
External (competitive) Fellowships
According to WIS policy external (competitive) fellowships either replace the regular WIS fellowship or fund part of it. In other words, if the level of an external fellowship is higher than the regular WIS fellowship then the student is entitled to keep the balance. However, if the level of the extermal fellowship is lower than the regular WIS fellowship then the student is still paid the difference by the Institute.
