Study Abroad Program

AICF provides study abroad support for Israeli artists who have reached the highest levels of musical accomplishment in Israel and have been admitted to the most prestigious conservatories and universities worldwide. The program has helped our artists to study at remarkable institutions such as the Juilliard School and the Royal Academy of Music etc. We have been pleased to increase the size of the grants offered, based on need, and to provide up to $12,000 per grant recipient.

We are pleased to announce that the Polonsky Foundation supports a number of designated grants through this program for excelling students studying in the UK and Europe. The Abroad Grants program in Jazz has been sponsored by the “Karen Green Memorial Study Abroad Scholarships” in partnership with the Canada-Israel Cultural Foundation since 2022.

The Study Abroad Program for Israeli musicians was also supported by the Stavros Niarchos Foundation, which awarded grants to 20-25 exceptional artists studying outside of Israel each year, during 2019-22.
