2020 Annual Scholarship Campaign
Our Future Depends on Their Future … Their Future Depends on YOU
Help ensure that at-risk students can continue to pursue their studies and make an impactful contribution to global progress.
Now, in these challenging times, Israel’s future leaders and innovators, need your urgent help.
The academic year started mid-October for Tel Aviv University (TAU), so the timing could not be more critical to ensure that all of our students can return and continue their studies with financial peace of mind. This in turn will ensure they have every opportunity to successfully complete their degree, realise their academic dreams and make their own destiny.
In the wake of COVID-19, countless of Tel Aviv University (TAU) students, from low-income and underrepresented groups, are at risk of dropping out because of financial difficulties. Lost jobs as well as the need to provide extra support to their families have compounded these students’ already enormous challenge of financing studies.
We are proud that TAU’s student body mirrors the diversity of Israeli society including Ethiopian Israelis, Israeli Arabs, Ultra Orthodox, single mothers, and residents of low socio-economic cities and towns. Many of these students are only able to access higher education through financial assistance from TAU, and your generous support.
Without income to cover their rent, tuition and living expenses, too many students have already informed the University they may be forced to drop out.
“I owe who I am today and who I will be tomorrow to those who have believed in me and have invested their time, wisdom, care and support to inspire, transform and empower me as a rising changemaker. I want to give back on what was invested in me and to do so in whatever way possible.”

“My original plan was to study law at Tel Aviv University”, but due to financial struggles Melisa could not attend. However, today, Melisa “couldn’t be more thankful: A TAU scholarship has given me the chance to pursue a degree I have longed for several years… I am eager to join the human rights and housing clinics at our law faculty and help others in their fight for justice.”

“My name is Ishay Ravina and I’m a student at the Buchmann-Mehta School of Music for a double first degree of both vocal and musicology studying…
After high school I decided I should keep developing in the field of music, by having a B. M. Mus from university. I highly thank you for this generous donation, which helps me a lot financially, especially in this challenging period of the COVID-19 pandemic.”
