Admissions & Financial Aid
The IISHJ strives to both be open and welcoming and also maintain high personal and professional standards for its students. Admission to the programs of the Institute is by application. See the separate pages for our Rabbinic, Leadership, Educator, Musician, Spokesperson or Master's Degree programs for more detailed information regarding the admission requirements for each.
Financial Aid is available for Educators Program, Leadership Program and Rabbinic Program students in the forms of partial tuition waivers, travel grants, work-study fellowships and direct scholarships. Awards are based on financial need, academic qualifications and commitment to completion of the enrolled academic or professional program. More information on financial aid opportunities will be provided as part of the application process.
