A final informational session regarding travel to Israel through the Michigan Consortium for Israel Studies is set for Wednesday, Jan. 25 at 7 p.m.
The info session will be held via Zoom.
This opportunity is open to undergraduate students in any discipline. Students will study at Tel Aviv University and explore the Holy Land from May 30-June 30, 2023.
The three participants from Detroit Mercy will each receive a $5,000 travel grant for air and ground travel, accommodations, meals, programming at Tel Aviv University, covered by the Nora and Guy Barron Fund.
Destinations central to Judaism, Christianity and Islam will be visited. The program includes excursions to Jerusalem, Nazareth and the Dead Sea. Participation in this program requires guest enrollment in two Eastern Michigan University courses that are each offered for three credits. Summer travel and coursework is coordinated by Eastern Michigan. All credits are issued through EMU and students must submit guest applications required by EMU and their home institutions.
The classes offered are Imagining the Holy Land (3 Religious Studies credit) and Israeli Life and Culture (3 elective credits).
Detroit Mercy’s Financial Aid office can work with students to discuss how financial aid might apply toward the tuition for the two courses. The travel grant of $5,000 will be awarded through EMU’s offices.
