The Need
There are very few scholarships offered to Arab students and even those that exist are accepted mainly on the basis of socioeconomic status and not according to other suitability parameters that combine leadership and leadership skills such as the desire and ability to volunteer and educate youth. According to the data of the Council for Higher Education, this is the share of the Arab students in the Israeli academy: The number of Arab students today and a decade ago:

Since 2008

Despite the significant increase described above, the data of the Council for Higher Education indicate a significantly higher dropout rate in the first year of studies. In addition, there is an increase in the number of Arab students who prefer studying in non-Israeli universities.

Atidna’s answer:

The Atidna scholarship program began in 2020 and is intended to help students with leadership potential, in the spirit of Atidna values, to lead youth and bring about change in society. Atidna scholars volunteer in the Atidna youth movement and are role models for the young people in the movement.

The Atidna scholarship is intended for Israeli Arab students studying for a bachelor’s degree in Israeli institutions of higher education, recognized by the Council for Higher Education.

The emerging need is therefore to create communities of Arab students and academics, connected to the values ​​of Atidna, committed to volunteering, involvement and giving within the Arab society, and constituting an ever-expanding bridge of the Arabs to the leading fields of activity in the economy.

Atidna’s scholarship program helps students successfully complete their studies here in Israel, and provides them with tools, skills and a supportive social network, which will help them get accepted to quality jobs after graduation.

The goals of the program

Cultivating leadership skills and training among students with leadership potential from the Arab society, in order to strengthen and grow children and youth in the Arab society and to be a role model for them in the spirit of the Atidna movement's values

Strengthening the sense of competence among the Arab students through professional support and in the framework of seminars and enrichment programs during the degree

Increasing the number of Arab students studying for a bachelor's degree in Israeli higher education institutions

Building a learning, supportive and stable community for years after graduation
