  • Scholarship Reconsideration

    Students studying in Israel who have been previously admitted to the Honors Program and awarded an academic scholarship may request reconsideration by the Honors Committee in light of recent accomplishments. All submissions for reconsideration must be received by December 26, 2014. The applicant must also contact the S. Daniel Abraham Israel Program office to arrange an interview, which will be held in January at YU's Joseph and Caroline Gruss Campus in Jerusalem (40 Duvdevani Street).

    Those requesting reconsideration must submit the following:

    • The Scholarship Reconsideration Form (PDF)
    • The Reconsideration Statement. The statement should describe how the applicant has grown in the year since the original application.
    • One letter of recommendation from a faculty member or administrator at the applicant's Israel school
    • Optionally, an Honors Admissions Essay chosen from the prompts below.
      • For Jay and Jeanie Schottenstein or S. Daniel Abraham Honors Program applicants:
        • In 750 words or fewer, tell us what your ideal college class would be and why.
        • "The true sign of intelligence is not knowledge but imagination" (Albert Einstein).  Use your imagination and be creative in telling us who you are.  Submit a written piece, video (three minutes or less), blog, digital portfolio, research documentation, music recording, piece of visual art, or use whichever medium works best for you.
      • For Business Honors and Entrepreneurial Leadership Program applicants:
        • Describe in 750 words or fewer a significant project you undertook, including goals, specific roles and responsibilities, personal strengths and ethical principles, a review of the project's success, potential improvements, and a summary of what you learned about yourself.
