FAQ

Do you give scholarships?
Yes, but not for everyone. At the beginning of the year the student will complete a fellowship application. During the year, Maaleh's Fellowships Committee will decide which students will be granted a fellowship. The decisions are based on (a) economic need and (b) success of the student in his/her studies.
There are also fellowship opportunities for students who are learning simultaneously at Maaleh and  Beit Berl Collage.

Is it possible to learn acting?
Maaleh does not teach acting, but the students do have courses in directing actors, acting in front of the camera, building a character, etc.
Does Maale grant academic degrees?
Since 2010, Maaleh has worked in cooperation with Beit Berl Collage which offers a  teacher degree (B.Ed) for students in   cinema studies. The course is 3-4 years with classes meeting once a week. Maaleh and Beit Berl will give fellowships to some of these students, and waive tuition for those with grades of at least 630 on the psychometry exams.
