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.

Accommodations

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. Special circumstances will be handled on an individual basis.

Fees

There are NO application, registration, visa or tuition fees.

Travel arrangements and costs

Airfare or any other travel costs are not covered by the program. You are responsible for your own travel arrangements.

Medical Insurance


Upon arrival at the Institute, overseas students must purchase a medical insurance plan for the duration of their stay. Please note that any illness contracted before arrival in Israel are generally not covered by these types of insurance plans.

Meal Plan

You are responsible for your own meals during your stay. There are cafeterias available on campus, and cooking facilities are available in the dormitories.

Scientific research never ends. While you are welcome to work as many hours as you wish, you are expected to spend a minimum of at least eight hours per day in your research group. If you will be absent from your research group for one day or more, you must coordinate your absence in advance with the Head of your research group AND the Program Coordinator at the Feinberg Graduate School. Weekends – Fridays and Saturdays in Israel – are usually considered as free time from the program. You may spend your weekends anywhere you choose in Israel. However, the Head of your research group may request your presence at the laboratory for a few hours on Fridays for group meetings, special scheduled experiments, or other activities. In that case, your presence is required.

As a student in the Kupcinet-Getz International Science School, you are expected to devote most of your time to research within the framework of the program. In addition, it is obligatory to participate in all of the program’s activities – both scholastic and extracurricular – including the mini-symposium, lectures, and a safety seminar. Absence from any part of the program must be coordinated in advance with the Program Coordinator.

    Even if by ‘opportunity to experience science’ they meant working for an hourly rate below the minimum wage (even in some of the third world countries) still this sounds more like a slavery. Most probably even cleaning tables in Mc-Donalds in Tel-Aviv would earn you way more than 3.5$ per hour, but at least there they would provide you with a meal and would not expect you to work on weekends and above the daily maximum.

    Here even in from the cover letter it is dead clear that one of the weekends will be occupied, and most probably you will work 10 hours per day instead of 8.
