Who can apply?

Young professionals (ages 21-39) from across North America are encouraged to apply.

Do I need to already be involved as a leader with Israel Policy Forum and IPF Atid to be considered?

Priority consideration will be given to individuals currently engaged in the IPF Atid community. Atidniks involved in IPF Atid Steering Committees, the 2018 and 2019 Charles Bronfman Convener Cohorts, and other leadership networks affiliated with Israel Policy Forum such as the IPF Atid Supporter Community are encouraged to apply.

This trip is intended for participants who contribute a minimum annual gift of $500 to Israel Policy Forum during the 2019 calendar year.

I’d like to attend but would need to join late or leave early. Am I still eligible?

Delegation participants must be able to commit to the entire itinerary, as well as all pre-trip and post-trip webinar sessions.

What will the itinerary look like?

The itinerary’s meetings and travel will be demanding, with sessions scheduled to begin each day before 8:30AM and close around 10:00PM. Blocks of free time will also be built in throughout.

How much does the delegation cost?

The program and travel costs are fully subsidized. Participants will only be asked to pay for occasional meals and other nominal costs, including transportation to/from airports and lodging (as needed) on the nights before and/or after the program. Accommodations are based on double occupancy.

Are students eligible to apply?

The delegation is intended for young professionals active with IPF Atid and who have completed their undergraduate studies as of June 2019. Involved graduate students are encouraged to apply.

Is the delegation Shabbat-friendly?

Yes. Kosher food will also be available with every meal. Early travel can also be arranged for those observing Shabbat, although the arrangements for this lodging will be covered by the delegate.
