Israel Scholarship Education FoundationJU_admin
Since its establishment 45 years ago by Mr. and Mrs. Safra and Mrs. Nina Weiner, ISEF has awarded more than 20,000 university scholarships to gifted Israelis from disadvantaged backgrounds. ISEF scholars are chosen through a competitive process based on their academic achievements and leadership potential. They study at all degree levels and participate in a wide range of community service projects, including teaching and mentoring over 3,000 at-risk Israeli youth. Being an ISEF scholar does not only give access to tuition funds: students receive leadership training and benefit from a robust support network, including current and former scholars.
ISEF alumni have distinguished themselves in every field: they are professors at top universities around the world, college deans, pioneering scientists, medical doctors and heads of hospitals, leaders of non-profit organizations, executives and owners of major businesses, members of the Israeli parliament, and heads of government ministries.
During the coronavirus crisis, ISEF provided new laptops to over 50 students, refurbished computers for dozens more, offered mobile internet access to students that didn’t have it, and launched emotional support groups for those in need.
