The Choosing Tomorrow program that was established by the Jewish Agency focuses its efforts on retaining students in the Negev. The assumption is that significant efforts to forge a strong connection with the community and its strengths, alongside employment in the area and a social network and sense of belonging to the community, will help retain students. In turn, these students will create an active community of young people with social responsibility to the locality and to the area in which they live and work. As part of the program the students create, initiate and acquire professional tools for social entrepreneurship and establish a thriving young community.
The scholarship is in the amount of NIS 10,000 for a period of two years, during the student’s 2nd and 3rd years of study. Students participating in the program are required to attend weekly meetings and to take part in extensive social activities.
