MASHAV funds professional courses organized and hosted by Israeli institutions in subject areas that include agriculture, energy, natural resources, health, education, and social development. The remainder of the 2014 calendar includes courses in combating desertification and drought (separate courses in each of English, Spanish, and Russian); vegetable production (English); dairy production (English); and others.
Applications are submitted through Israel's diplomatic missions. For most courses, MASHAV covers course fees, accommodation, medical insurance, and other expenses in Israel (but not international airfare). Application deadlines are 29 August 2014 for the Spanish-language course on desertification; 08 September 2014 for the English-language course on desertification; and 06 October 2014 for the English-language course on vegetable production (no information on the deadlines of the other mentioned courses, but contacts are provided).
