Kupcinet-Getz International Summer School
The Kupcinet-Getz International Science School accepts a select number of outstanding undergraduate students each summer to participate in research projects in mathematics, physics, chemistry and the life sciences . This is an enrichment program designed for undergraduate students from all over the world who are majoring in the sciences, and it is an opportunity to experience science by becoming part of a research group at the Weizmann Institute. Participation in the Kupcinet-Getz International Science School has had a significant impact on past participants of the program, reinforcing the students’ interest in conducting research in their future careers.
As a student in this program, you will be associated with a laboratory or a theoretical research project under the supervision of an experienced scientist and, for a short period of time, will become a full-fledged member of the scientific team.
Participants receive a stipend of NIS 500 per week (up to NIS 4,000 in total).
All overseas students are provided with eight weeks of free rooming in the dormitories of the neighboring Faculty of Agriculture of the Hebrew University. If you arrive before the beginning of the program, or stay beyond the end of the program, you are responsible for your own living arrangements.

Airfare or any other travel costs are not covered by the program. You are responsible for your own travel arrangements.
The Kupcinet-Getz International Science School is open to all qualified students regardless of religion, race, color, national origin, age, disability or gender. Each year, the Feinberg Graduate School may accept a limited number of candidates to this program.
