Foreign Minister Golda Meir has been made an honorary member of a new Council Scholars Club, composed of specialists in the fields of social welfare, health and education who studied at American graduate schools on scholarships granted by the National Council of Jewish Women. The delegation which made the presentation represented some 70 Israeli women who have been granted Council scholarships since 1946, and who now hold key positions in this country.

Shortly after the ceremonies, II more Israelis who have received Council study grants sailed from Haifa to begin their year’s studies at various universities in the United States.
