Students from all departments, disciplines and backgrounds are encouraged to apply; candidates do not need to be Jewish studies majors or minors. Preference is given to students who intend to study a language related to the Jewish experience (e.g., Hebrew, Yiddish, Ladino) and/or have pursued coursework in Jewish studies during their graduate or undergraduate careers at the University of Washington.

Any undergraduate or graduate student planning to be enrolled at the University of Washington for the current academic year is eligible to apply. Students do not need to be registered with the University during summertime experiences, as long as they will register for classes normally in the autumn.
