Atidim: Enrichment Programs for Gifted Students

The Jewish Agency for Israel ©

Atidim, "Futures" in Hebrew, prepares promising students from disadvantaged communities for higher education at leading universities.

Established in 2000, Atidim has paved the way for a brighter future for tens of thousands of Israelis, including large numbers of Ethiopian immigrants and Bedouins and Druze.  
Three programs are operated as part of The Jewish Agency’s contribution to Atidim:
 
  • Pre-Atidim is designed for students in grades 7-12 who live in Israel’s geographic and social periphery, have advanced potential in the sciences, and are in the top third of academic achievement. Through the Wonderful Machine Science and Atidim.com Virtual Science Competitions they received tutoring from engineers and scientists who are leaders in their fields.
     
  • Atidim in Industry provides work experience at leading companies and financial support for university study for 21-30-year-olds.
     
  • Atidim Cadets for Public Service, which offers college scholarships to talented students who commit to work in the public sector.
