Many soldiers who were wounded during their service found their future plans and aspirations suddenly shattered. The need to support them and help them regain confidence is one of the highest priorities in their rehabilitation process. For many of the war disabled, developing their academic skills and supporting them during their academic studies will enable them to obtain an education and provide them with the necessary tools to regain confidence and belief in their own ability to face the challenge of a new life.
Scholarships are offered for BA, MA and PhD studies as well as for vocation studies at any higher academic institution recognised by the Israel Ministry of Education Board of Higher Education. Funds for the academic scholarships are raised within Israel and through donors around the world. Each of the scholarship recipients receives the donor’s name and any further information the donor wishes to provide and many of them send a personal thank you letter and updated information on their progress. The donor receives the full details of the scholarship recipient, the name of the institution University and the faculty.
