Academic Excellence

Asher Ragen
Supporting international-calibre research by investing in promising young scholars and selected fields of distinction

The Academic Excellence Programme aims to help world-class academic research thrive in Israel. Such activity is crucial to realizing elements of Yad Hanadiv’s mission, from advancing a vibrant society open to new ideas, to promoting equal opportunity and democratic values. Excellent universities are the birthplace of cutting-edge research and new intellectual frontiers, a prime meeting place for Israelis of different backgrounds, and a forum in which to encounter intellectual and scientific leaders from around the world. They are a vital pathway for talented Israelis to develop their potential and extend their reach internationally and are critical for long-term economic growth.
