Final Note

You’ve Got This!

It is our goal to continually provide up-to-date information on funding opportunities for our students. We want to make sure you are able to truly enjoy every minute of your education by taking the stress of financial educational stability out of the question. Thus, we cannot do it on our own. So, we humbly ask you to contact us if you have knowledge about scholarships we might be missing. We will gladly add them to the list! As of now, we have a strong focus on US and Israeli scholarships, but would love to hear from you should you know of more international funding.
