• Governmental participation – The government’s participation is transferred to these institutions primarily directly, and partially as dedicated appropriations for defined purposes. In the 2015/16 academic year, 57% of the higher education institutions’ budgets came from governmental participation. – 2018/19 Budget Booklet (Hebrew)
