MASA ISRAEL JOURNEY
Habonim Dror is the organizer of the Maslool Program, in cooperation with Masa, a project operated by the Israeli Government and the Jewish Agency for Israel. Masa provides financial support for eligible applicants, based on country of origin, age, program length, and personal or family financial situation. When you register for the program, simultaneously check your eligibility for a Masa grant or scholarship here. Processing of the Masa application may take up to 30 days. Applicants are then informed directly by Masa of the amount awarded to them. All grant/scholarship applications must be submitted before the start date of the program.
VERY IMPORTANT - Entry Permit to Israel
In order for you to receive any Masa funding you must present Masa with your entry permit from passport control (a small bluish note) that you will receive when entering Israel . You need to upload the entry permit to your Masa Personal Page no later than TWO WEEKS AFTER THE START DATE OF YOUR PROGRAM in order to be eligible for Masa money.
JUNE 2020 - DUE TO THE COVID-19 OUTBREAK, THERE HAVE BEEN CHANGES IN THE VISA REGULATIONS. CONTACT YOUR PROGRAM ADVISOR FOR THE LATEST NEWS.
If you are eligible for Masa funding, continue reading from the $ sign.
If you are not eligible for Masa funding,continue reading from the # sign.
If you have Israeli citizenship, continue reading from the @ sign.
$ Once you are awarded financial aid from Masa, you need to go to the Israeli Consulate/Embassy to get an A2 Masa student visa to Israel (free of charge). Needed documents: 1) passport which is valid for at least ONE YEAR from the date you plan to enter Israel, 2) our acceptance letter, and 3) the letter of participation that you will receive from Masa. IMPORTANT: Even though you can enter Israel on a regular B2 Tourist Visa and arrange your Masa Visa after arrival, we STRONGLY RECOMMEND ARRANGING YOUR A2 MASA VISA BEFORE YOUR ARRIVAL IN ISRAEL! After full completion of the program, Masa particpants are eligible for a six-month work permit.
# If you are not eligible for Masa financial aid, please contact your Program Advisor by phone or email, in order to receive information how to obtain an A2 non-Masa student visa.
@ Holders of Israeli passports do NOT need any visa, just a letter of army deferral (IDF). Contact your nearest embassy/consulate for details.
HOW MUCH DOES THE MASLOOL PROGRAM COST?
Due to the personalized and tailor-made nature of the program, the program price depends on the components that make up your program. The program price, including a breakdown, will be mentioned in the price quote and in the contract (which will have the most updated and final information).
In any case, here are some general guidelines:
The participant may pay in up to 4 installments, according to the following guidelines:
30% of program's price one week PRIOR to program's beginning.
70% The final installment must be in our account before mid-program.
In case the Masa funding covers the total program price or in case the Masa funding is higher than the total program price, the participant will pay the 30% of his/her program cost, which will be set as a deposit, and which will be returned to the participant after the end of the program.
Acceptance will not be confirmed until all documents and due payments have been received.
