Project Spotlight: Scholarships for Minority Students in Israel

Today, The Fellowship cares a lot for the Druze community in Israel – a minority group that has the highest percentage of youth who serve in the IDF than any other minority group in Israel. We feel privileged to help a community so committed to Israel’s security and wellbeing.

We fund a variety of programs to help the Druze community. Since 2014, The Fellowship has been funding scholarships for higher education for hundreds of young adults in the community who have finished IDF or community service.

Recently, Yael Eckstein attended the distribution ceremony to give as many as 180 young minorities Fellowship-funded scholarships. Yael addressed the group, saying, “It’s really our privilege to be a part of the process of your success. We know that you’ll succeed in being a very important and strong part of our state of Israel. Thank you and good luck.”
