Each year, NA’AMAT awards financial assistance to about 200 academically gifted Israeli women enabling them to follow their dreams and pursue bachelor’s and master’s degrees in challenging programs of study.
The criteria for selection ensures that qualifying women from all of Israel’s social circles are fairly represented. Many of the best and brightest of Israel’s most talented young women come from homes which lack the financial resources enabling them to continue their studies at the university level. Many have demonstrated special aptitude in fields traditionally occupied by men – engineering, medical and scientific research. By offering scholarship support, NA’AMAT ensures that these women of merit can develop the skills and education they need to realize their dreams and make their contribution to Israeli society. In special cases, NA’AMAT awards research grants to exceptional scholars pursuing doctoral degrees in the fields of women’s status and gender studies.
