Israel Offers Scholarships to Engineering, Architecture Students

Download PDF for this date

The serious shortage of engineers and architects in Israel’s Civil Service led the government today to decide to give scholarships for the study of engineering and architecture to promising students at the Technion-Israel Institute of Technology, Haifa. The scholarships, however, will go only to students willing to sign up for a minimum of two years’ government service at the conclusion of their studies.

A committee comprised of representatives of government ministries and consultants drawn from the Technion staff will decide on scholarship applications. Recipients of the study grants will serve in the Housing, Interior and Labor Ministries after graduation. The recruiting of qualified professional workers has been used for some years by the Israel Defense Forces.
