Help TAU’s reservist students fulfill their true calling

When duty called, they came. Now, it’s up to us to help them return to class, worry-free, and become the bright future of Israel.
The moment the Hamas-Israel war broke out, Israel reenlisted its reservists. Over 6,000 of them are Tel Aviv University students. They already completed regular IDF duty and are now in a different chapter in their lives: the one where they study to make their dreams and goals a reality.
This is where we come in: We must ensure that our returning students, our heroes, have the academic and financial assistance they need to succeed in their studies.
It is our duty to free reservist students from anxieties about missed studies and work, and to ensure that they can smoothly and fully resume their lives once they return from combat. We must — with academic and financial assistance — guarantee their educational futures and careers.
In previous military operations, this kind of help made all the difference for students who might have otherwise lost a semester or entire academic year.
You can help currently serving reservists, and returning ones, in the following ways:
- Scholarships for students who served as IDF reservists in Operation Iron Swords, with many remaining on the frontlines in Gaza and the north, in combat, for several months straight. Lone soldiers are particularly vulnerable. Allocations will be given of up to NIS 9,000 ($2,500) per student, depending on their type of military service and financial need.
- Personalized academic tutoring for returning soldiers who have missed important study material and who need help to complete courses, succeed in tests, and save the semester. Allocations vary but can reach $1,500 per student for the academic year.
Duty called and our courageous students dropped everything to fight for Israel’s defense.
On the day after, though, we need to fight for them – to help our returning reservists fulfill their true calling.
