For a substantial number of children and teenagers in Israel, academic studies are nothing but a distant and unattainable dream. The reason for this does not stem from the lack of qualifications or learning difficulties, but rather solely from the lack of financial means. The Jaffa Institute’s Scholarship Program aims to help disadvantaged students from our service area embark on the path towards higher education. The program awards scholarships to support the students’ cost of tuition and living expenses, thereby relieving the financial burden of obtaining a higher education. By removing socioeconomic barriers, the Scholarship Program ensures that higher education is accessible to all and enables recipients to progress towards a career and financial independence.
