Israel Entrepreneurship Internship Program

February 28, 2017

The Israel Entrepreneurship Internship Program, with a focus on startups and technology opportunities, provides Brown students the opportunity to expand classroom knowledge to the world of business through an immersive professional experience in Israel, where the startup culture flourishes.

Through a partnership with the Jonathan M. Nelson Center for Entrepreneurship, employers in Israel hold an internship position for Brown students to intern over the summer for 8-10 weeks. Selected students receive stipends of $5,000 to offset travel and living costs associated with taking the internship positions.  

Students completing internships over the summer will have the opportunity to gather for networking events and participate in entrepreneurship-themed learning experiences.

Application Process:

Students review 2017 internship opportunities in Israel and submit a resume and cover letter through the Brown Job and Internship Board for their first-choice company.  

Students should search for “Israel Entrepreneurship” in the JIB or BrownConnect to find the application and upload the necessary documents.

Application deadline: February 28, 2017

Applicants may apply to up to two companies and submit a unique cover letter for each organization.

If you are choosing a second choice employer, please email your additional cover letter(and resume, if modified for second choice) directly to Gregory Seiler ([email protected]) at the same time you submit your application in the Job and Internship Board.

In March 2017, participating employers will review materials and schedule skype calls with candidates.
