For many Israeli students, the dream of being accepted into most prestigious institutions in the world can often pose great financial and personal obstacles. ISEF ‘s commitment to helping its scholars realize their fullest potential means that we support every step of their academic journeys.

Each year, ISEF sponsors its most outstanding scholars for advanced training at top universities throughout the United States, Canada, and Europe. ISEF also sponsors medical training outside Israel, to address Israel’s shortage of physicians.

Enrolled in doctoral and postdoctoral programs at top universities such as Harvard, Stanford, California Institute of Technology, Columbia, and Cambridge (U.K.), ISEF’s International Fellows are conducting groundbreaking research in computer technology, public policy, law, and science. Their cutting-edge work in the study and treatment of cancer, HIV, diabetes, Parkinson’s and Alzheimer’s disease reflects the incredible impact that ISEF’s gift of education can have on Israel and the world.
