Scholarships for Advanced Degrees and Hiring Outstanding Faculty Members

The PBC supports encouraging excellence and grants scholarships for excellence in advanced degrees to Arab students. Scholarships are awarded to master’s degree students, doctoral students, as well as postdoctoral students.

Similarly, the PBC provides support for hiring outstanding Arab faculty members by means of Ma’of Scholarships designated for outstanding young scientists. Their purpose is to enable recipients to be accepted to universities and colleges financed by the PBC. The institutions commit to accepting scholarship recipients as full-time staff members at the end of the scholarship. From 2009 and until 2019, the PBC granted 51 Ma’of Scholarships to a total of approximately NIS 50,000,000 to outstanding Arab academic faculty members.
