MIT is a place of extraordinary interactions. It's a setting where people and ideas come together in new waysâ€”illuminating mysteries, making sparks fly, and fostering intellectual breakthroughs. The mission of MIT is to advance knowledge and educate students in science, technology and other areas of scholarship that will best serve the nation and the world in the 21st century â€” whether the focus is cancer, energy, economics or literature. Â These attitudes and goals play out, as well, throughout the Jewish community.
While MIT does not offer a traditional study abroad option in Israel, MISTI-Israel is an MIT summer internship programming allowing students to (at MIT's cost and with a stipend) work in Israeli labs and tech companies over the summer.
