Doctoral Degrees

The President's Doctoral Fellowships of Excellence Program

Since its inception in 1999, the pioneering Doctoral Fellowships of Excellence Program at Bar-Ilan - the first of its kind in the State of Israel - is serving as an important vehicle to meet the challenge of cultivating a new cadre of young academicians and scientists who will make lasting contributions to Israeli academia and society-at-large.

Thanks to the generous funders of this program, the university has more than doubled its entire doctoral program - from 760 to 1,800. This overwhelming rise has impacted significantly on the amount of research being conducted at Bar-Ilan. More than 1,100 scholarships have been awarded since the launching of the program.

However, the recent dramatic decrease in government spending for higher education has brought about the need for greater funding from donors and foundations. By becoming a sponsoring partner, you will help nurture an individual doctoral candidate and follow their progress as they grow into full-fledged professionals - leading Israel into the future.

Your gift will allow our many gifted doctoral candidates to concentrate fully on their rigorous academic agenda and allow them to blossom to their full potential.
