The Schusterman Center's Summer Institute for Israel Studies is a one-of-a-kind program dedicated to expanding Israel studies on a global scale.

The Summer Institute for Israel Studies welcomes tenure-track faculty from the U.S. and around the world to a two-week residency at Brandeis. During this time, Summer Institute for Israel Studies fellows attend seminars taught by distinguished Israel studies scholars and develop syllabi for courses they will teach upon returning to their home institutions. The residency is followed by a 10-day tour of Israel, featuring encounters with Jewish and Arab intellectuals, politicians and community leaders.

After completing the program, Summer Institute for Israel Studies alumni continue to enjoy access to a trove of resources – syllabi, articles, archives, podcasts, conferences, workshops and webinars – and an ever-growing network of peers that spans the globe.

Since 2007, the Summer Institute for Israel Studies has been building a community of scholars who are integrating Israel studies into their institutions all over the world.

During the first two weeks, SIIS fellows are in residence at Brandeis and participate in seminars taught by distinguished Israel Studies scholars. These seminars focus on Israel’s society, history, politics, culture, foreign affairs, and diplomacy. Fellows are then required to present syllabi for the courses they plan to teach on their home campuses. Accommodations are in shared suites at the university's newest residence halls.
