TOMORROW’S LEADERS NEED OUR HELP TODAY
TAU’s students are tomorrow’s leaders and innovators, ensuring that Israel will continue to thrive in science, technology, medicine, arts and culture. The University is committed to providing a first-rate education to all students including those who are under-represented, disabled, or part of ethnic minorities. Scholarships help ensure that Israel’s brightest minds have access to quality education.
By supporting scholarships at TAU you will provide a lifeline to the young people who will conceive Israel’s next big ideas:
