Student Grants

BFHU is a major source of UK scholarship funding to the University; one of our key goals is to do our utmost to ensure that British students have an opportunity to study at the Hebrew University.

We believe that money should never be an obstacle to achievement and we offer scholarship awards based on merit and need. We cannot offer full scholarships but endeavour to help all our students meet their financial needs whenever we can.*

In addition, many of the Hebrew University’s programmes are MASA accredited. MASA is an Israeli government initiative designed to encourage diaspora Jews aged 17 to 30 to come to Israel to study. Any Jewish student under the age of 30 wishing to study in Israel for a semester or longer will be eligible for an Israeli government scholarship.

BFHU offers limited funding to Hebrew University graduates who wish to study in the UK.

Scholarship Applications for the academic year 2023/24 are now closed

Scholarship Applications for 2024/25 will open on 1 March 2024, the deadline for those applicants is 31 May 2024

Although our Scholarship awards are grants we hope that all recipients will be able to make a donation to The British Friends of the Hebrew University (if possible up to the value of the original award) within 5 to 10 years after the end of their studies. As a result of such donations we expect, with your support, to be able to increase the number of awards we make.
