Birthright Excel is a highly selective business fellowship for college sophomores, juniors and seniors in the US and Canada and young adults up to age 26 in other countries. The fellowship begins with an immersive 10-week professional internship in Israel with Fortune 500 companies and startups. It is for highly accomplished Jewish college sophomores, juniors and select seniors in the US and Canada *(and up to age 26 for international applicants) who are pursuing careers in business and/or technology. Each Excel Fellow embarks on an in-depth professional internship choosing among a wide selection of industries: bio-tech, business development, consulting, engineering, finance, marketing, technology, startups, venture capital. Internships run during the Israeli work week, Sundays - Thursdays and each Excel Fellow is appointed a mentor at the company where they will intern. The mentor serves as both a supervisor and someone who helps introduce Israeli business culture. Often times, mentors and Excel Fellows form a relationship that extends well beyond the summer We take particular pride in several mentors/fellows collaborating on business endeavors.
