The Tikvah Fund is Looking For a Few Good Troops

I was recently contacted by the folks over at The Tikvah Fund to help promote some of their programs. It’s an organization that brings individuals from America, Israel, and around the world to New York City to study economics, war and grand strategy, and Jewish thought. They get a lot of participation from IDF service-members, and are now seeking to expand participation among U.S. service members.

Their programs offer generous stipends to cover travel, lodging, and investment of time. They run 1 to 2 weeks starting next spring.

Program: Tikvah Advanced Institutes
Stipend: $1,000 to $5,000
Dates: 1 to 3 week seminars, running from April to July 2014.
Application Due Date: February 15, 2014
