Higher Education Scholarships
Many soldiers who were wounded during their service found their dreams and plans suddenly shattered. The need to support and assist them in finding a new direction has become the highest priority in their rehabilitation process.
For many of the war disabled, developing their academic skills and supporting them during their academic studies will enable them to obtain an education and provide them with the necessary tools to regain confidence and belief in their own ability to face the challenge of a new life.
Applications for scholarship for academic studies are sent to the scholarship committee once a year for each completed academic year.
In 2015-16 415 Academic Scholarship were handed out totaling some $580,000 USD to Zahal Disabled Veterans.
The amount of the scholarship is between US$1,000-1,500.
Excelling Disabled Athletes Scholarships
Research shows that being involved in sport activities, particularly in competitive sport, has a significant effect (mentally, physically and socially) on the rehabilitation process of the disabled.
In recent years the field of competitive sport for the disabled has become more professional and demanding. Attaining the necessary criteria to take part in international competitions requires of the disabled to persevere in their efforts, invest countless hours of training and place sports at the top of their priorities.
Scholarships for Excelling Disabled Athletes aim to support, encourage and motivate those disabled who were qualified to take part in international competitions and the Paralympic games as well as those who have shown that through continued sports activity their rehabilitation has benefitted and their physical and mental condition improved.
Scholarships are awarded to outstanding disabled players in all fields of sport who have had significant achievements and major results as well as to coaches who have stood out in their dedication and training programs. Scholarships are also offered as an incentive to young disabled athletes who exhibit perseverance and seriousness, showing progress over a period of at least three consecutive years.
A Scholarship can range between US$ 1,350 – US$ 2,700.
