Students applying to research programs at the Zvi Meitar Center for Advanced Legal Studies may also apply for research funding. The Center offers several grants for LL.M. and Ph.D. students of exceptional research potential. These are aimed at enabling applicants who wish to study at the Center to focus on full-time study and research, by providing them assistance with tuition fees, living costs and general funding.
The research grants are tenable for one year in the first instance and thereafter may, subject to the student's satisfactory progress, be renewed each year at the Center's discretion. The maximum period of the grants is 1-2 years for LL.M. students; 3 for Ph.D. students and 4 for direct Ph.D. track students.
Eligibility decisions are made based on academic merit and other special criteria without regard to an applicant's financial need. For more information, please read the Rules for Candidates Wishing to Receive a Zvi Meitar Scholarship.
In order to apply for research funding, please complete the Scholarship Application Form and attach it to your study program application form.
The application deadline for scholarship is similar to the admission deadline. Applicants are strongly encouraged to research financial options on their own.
International students should also explore further financing options in their home countries. Students should be cognizant of their spending habits and budget accordingly for the duration of the program. While the degree is an excellent investment in yourself and your career, it is important to adequately prepare for the financial events related to being a student, including tuition, housing, transportation and basic necessities.
