A day at the Golf Course with Kevin Pillar

Join Kevin Pillar and Canadian Friends of Tel Aviv University in

support of the Pillar-Lambert Scholarship Fund at Tel Aviv University.

Don’t miss this opportunity to play at one of the top 100 ranked golf courses for what promises to be a fantastic day of golf.

CFTAU’s Charity Golf Tournament will be held at in support of the Pillar-Lambert Scholarship Fund at Maple Downs Golf & Country Club.

The Pillar-Lambert Scholarship Fund will boost accessibility to the finest university education for talented young Israelis from outlying and developmental towns. Statistics published by the Israeli Education Ministry show that the top high schools in the centre of the country outperform the best schools in the periphery. This means that, generally, young people from Israel’s outlying and economically distressed communities have lower standardized test scores and therefore lower university admittance rates compared to those from the wealthier central region. To redress this, TAU’s highly successful Periphery Program, established in 2005, admits students based on their achievements relative to peers in their own high schools, rather than standardized admission tests.
