In addition to the subsidy that Olim receive from Minhal Hastudentim (The Student Authority), students can apply for a scholarship from various foundations and organizations. Each scholarship program has different eligibility criteria.
Students can also apply for student loans with low interest rates and deferred payment plans through most Israeli banks as well as through the universities.
The best way to start your search for a scholarship is to visit the website of your chosen college or university. Look under the heading “Milgot.” In addition, you can use the sites below to find out about scholarships which are not specific to a particular institution.
