The goal of Academic Exchange (AE) is to deepen understanding of Israel within the international academic community.

AE organizes educational missions to Israel and conferences on subjects relevant to Israeli and Middle-East politics for scholars in the fields of Political Science, International Relations, International Law, Modern History, and Journalism.

Programs offer the opportunity for deepened understanding of the region through its many dimensions, and the chance to meet with prominent Israeli and Palestinian spokesmen, scholars, political and military leaders.

AE, a not for profit organization, has established this fellowship program in partnership with the Milken Institute, the Yitzhak Rabin Center, and the RAND Corporation.
