70, 000 Students in Israel to Benefit from Scholarships

The Education Ministry said today that nearly 70, 000 students from Oriental and new immigrant communities will benefit from more than 1, 000, 000 pounds ($333, 333) in secondary and vocational school scholarships.

The scholarship stipends are being provided through a joint Government -Jewish Agency fund. Some 80 per cent of the recipients are from Oriental communities and the rest from families who immigrated to Israel during the past four years.
