Nature knows no borders.
Named one of the top 100 environmental think tanks in the world, the Arava Institute for Environmental Studies is a leading environmental and academic institution in the Middle East, dedicated to preparing future leaders from Israel, Palestine, Jordan, and around the world to cooperatively solve the regional and global challenges of our time.
Join a multi-cultural campus community; engage in real time environmental research while engaging in peace-building and environmental leadership dialogue and training.
The Arava Institute is home to five trans-boundary research and development centers focusing on the areas of key environmental concern — water management, renewable energy and energy conservation, sustainable agriculture, ecology, and sustainable development. The research centers enable critical cross-border exchanges of knowledge and technology by providing young Israeli, Palestinian, Jordanian, and international researchers the opportunity to work together and advance solutions to the region’s pressing environmental issues.
Interns contribute substantively to trans-boundary research through a defined project under the direction of a faculty member, while gaining a valuable professional, academic, and personal experience. Interns develop skills in environmental research and development, environmental policy, and project management; gain important professional contacts and build effective community based partnerships; and become a vital part of the global network of accomplished Arava Institute alumni. The Arava Institute welcomes interns from varied backgrounds, including the social and the natural sciences.
