"The future of Israel depends on its ability to be better than most if not all. That is also how we mean to compensate for the deficiency in numbers. We must have quality and excellence."

The Argov Fellows Program in Leadership and Diplomacy seeks to prepare around 20 exceptional IDC students in their final year of B.A studies for future leadership positions in Israel and in the Jewish world. Through a year-long, challenging interdisciplinary curriculum, the program seeks to help the students acquire the knowledge, tools, skills and critical thinking abilities necessary for working towards meeting the many challenges that Israel faces in today’s complex global environment.
