Thanks for your interest in the Szarvas Fellowships. Before completing this application, be sure to read the Fellowships description. Szarvas Fellows are selected from around North America to travel to the International Jewish Summer Camp in Hungary, where they spend two weeks making friends from around the world, exploring their own family roots, and learning about life in different Jewish communities. They do not serve as counselors, but rather enjoy the warm summer camp environment as equal participants with Jewish students their age from around the world.
