by supporting the next generation of students at Tel Aviv University
Every contribution to this Campaign will go towards full or partial scholarships for talented students at undergraduate and postgraduate levels
It’s often said that Israel’s greatest natural resource is the brain-power of its people — but the skills needed for leadership don’t just happen. They are carefully shaped and nourished by a first-rate education.
That’s why TAU graduates and faculty can be found at the helm of Israel’s leading companies, in the top echelons of public service, and on the cutting edge of science and technology. And why your contribution today will have such an important impact on tomorrow, helping to forge the leaders of the next generation.

The Pillar-Lambert Scholarship Fund named in memory of Toronto Blue Jays outfielder Kevin Pillar’s grandfather, Ed Lambert, will boost accessibility for talented young Israelis from outlying and developmental towns to study Accounting at Tel Aviv University
Kevin Pillar said,
“I am proud to be establishing the Pillar-Lambert Scholarship in Accounting at Tel Aviv University in memory of my grandfather Ed. Through this scholarship I am honouring my grandfather’s career in accounting and the Jewish traditions and values he and my grandmother lived by.”
Supporting the future of Israel’s talented youth enables Israel’s continued success.
The burden of defending the State of Israel has fallen on the shoulders of the young men and woman serving in combat units, both in regular service and in the reserves. Tens of thousands of them, all in the prime of their lives, are willing to drop everything-their families, their studies, their jobs- to risk the ultimate sacrifice for their country.
The Scholarship Fund for Reserve Combat Soldiers will both provide comprehensive scholarships, stipends and support resources for our Reserve Combat Soldiers. Every dollar raised will enable TAU to reassure the courageous students that their call to duty will not impede, in any way, with their academic studies.
Remember the young men and women who believe in Israel and the Jewish people and who have committed their lives to help protect the future of both.
Please give generously.
Tel Aviv University is revolutionizing social responsibility education in Israel with recently Introduced “TAU Social Impact” – Accredited Courses for Civic Action.
Action Now: With over 30 percent of citizens living in poverty, widespread educational gaps and insufficient access to quality social services, among other problems, Israeli society faces considerable hurdles. Action must be taken if we are to ensure a more just and equitable society for current and future generations.
Track Record: Having recognized this need early on, the Unit for Social Involvement at Tel Aviv University’s Ruth and Alan Ziegler Student Services Division has run dozens of programs through the years that build up students’ social leadership and entrepreneurship skills.
Leap Forward: Now, with this solid foundation in place, Tel Aviv University aspires toward greater impact. In a move that is the first of its kind in Israel, and possibly in the world, the University is launching a program to include social involvement as part of a required and accredited course in the undergraduate curriculum of all faculties. Beginning in the 2016-17 academic year, the University will launch 35 courses that integrate theory and practice in civic engagement (Click here for details of the courses – In Hebrew).
Students will gain community-oriented knowledge and skills through lectures given by academic experts and hands-on training by NGO professionals. Then, according to the topic of the course, students will implement their know-how in the field.
Personalization: Students will be allowed to choose from a broad range of specially-developed courses. Topics will address the major challenges facing Israeli society today, among them: education, health, inequality and social exclusion, human rights and racism, violence, the environment, women’s rights, and citizenship.
Funding Need: Tel Aviv University envisions rolling out up to 40 courses per year over the next 5 years to achieve a steady state of 200 courses total. The target is to get all of the University’s 15,000 undergraduate students actively engaged in social involvement before they graduate.
Outcomes: This new initiative will have far-reaching impact. First, because of Israel’s small size, the thousands of TAU graduates who gain social awareness and leadership experience will form a critical mass of knowledgeable, capable and influential change-makers in society. Second, the Tel Aviv University model of accredited social responsibility courses will most likely be replicated among many of Israel’s 69 other universities and colleges; this would significantly enlarge the pool of educated young people with a strong social commitment. Finally, this revolutionary program will significantly enhance learning, research and academia’s long-term contribution to society.
Your donation will enable Tel Aviv University to break new ground in management research and innovation.
Students will be educated on the core fundamentals of venture and entrepreneurship, and nurture the leaders of the future. Learn more about the Coller School of Management
