The heart of the IGF program is the fellowship experience in the Israeli government and in related organizations. Fellows are placed in serious positions of genuine responsibility, where they are placed based on their skills, preferences and interests, as well as their relevance to the various positions.
Fellows will managed and guided by their mentors, who are unit, department, or division directors. Fellows will also be mentored by the program deputy director, who is in contact with both Fellows and their mentors. Both will be working together with the Fellows to ensure a fulfilling, professionally challenging and rewarding fellowship experience.
After being accepted to the program and approximately two months prior to the start of the session, each Fellow is given a wide list of the possible internship options. Following a one on one discussion with the program staff, each Fellow will choose their top five placements from the list.
