The International School grants a limited number of scholarships and the selection is extremely competitive. Even if awarded a scholarship, candidates must also have funding for the admission deposit, round-trip airfare and intial living expenses.
We encourage applicants to seek additional scholarship sources or an educational loan. It is very important to apply for these scholarships early and to allow several months to receive a decision.
In some countries, partial or full study scholarships are awarded by the Ministry of Agriculture or a National Committee for Research and Development. Some NGOs or places of employment also provide financial support for advanced studies.
There are various international sources to which candidates may apply for full or supplementary funding:
- Nestle Foundation for the Study of Problems of Nutrition in the World
- Scholarships Portal
- World Bank
- OFID Scholarships
- Ford Foundation
- Rockefeller Foundation
- Joint Japan/World Bank Graduate Scholarship Program (JJ/WBGSP) administered by the World Bank. For information, visit the World Bank website.
- Israel Ministry of Foreign Affairs has cultural agreements with a number of countries. Visit their website to see if your country is listed or inquire at your local Israel Embassy. Apply early! The deadline for applications is November 30 in the year prior to the start of the program you are applying to.
Each fund has strict eligibility criteria regarding the country of origin, work experience, previous studies, age, etc. Individuals must submit scholarship applications directly to these funds according to their deadlines and regulations. Requests are considered alongside others from around the world applying for scholarships in a variety of programs.
The Hebrew University has no role in the decision-making processes of these institutions. We will make every effort to provide official documentation requested by the sponsoring institution by their deadline.
