(Choosing Tomorrow Program (Jewish Agency

The "Choosing Tomorrow" ("Boharim Mahar") program, developed by the Jewish Agency, focuses its efforts on keeping students in the Negev. The premise for this program is that significant endeavors that forge a strong connection with the community and its strengths, along with a solid work environment, network and community, will help to keep young people in a certain region. These young people essentially create an active and socially responsible community that reinforces the environment in which they live and work.

Throughout their participation in the program, students create, initiate and acquire professional tools for social entrepreneurship, and establish a thriving young community.

The sum of the scholarship is 10,000 NIS for a period of two years, during the 2nd and 3rd years of their studies. Students participating in this program are required to attend weekly meetings and take part in extensive social activities.
