Each year, Na'amat awards 190 university scholarships to academically gifted Israeli women, giving them the chance to attend university or facilitating the completion of their Bachelors or Masters degrees.
Most of these scholarships are in fields traditionally occupied by men – engineering, medical and scientific research. The awards offer women talented in these areas the opportunity to develop the skills they need to escape poverty, enter promising careers and make their mark on Israeli society. Through this important program, Na'amat contributes to the empowerment and advancement of a new generation of women.
University Research Grants
Na'amat also offers awards for annual research grants that help women pursue their PhDs in the fields of gender studies (4 grants) and science (4 grants).
