Review for Israel Scholarship Education Foundation , New York, NY, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

I became a member of ISEF in the last 4 years, immediately upon the beginning of my PhD. When I applied to receive ISEF scholarship I was yet to realize the value of this possibility and just how much it could contribute to my development, both in terms of carrier and personal growth.

Before joining ISEF I had a view of myself as a critical and socially aware scientist, but in ISEF I learned some humility as I was exposed to the best activists and thinkers of this country. Coming from a unique background within my peers, in ISEF I found the home I could not find in academia otherwise. In every meeting of ISEF PhD group I am amazed to find people that grew up in circumstances not different from my own, crowding the first raw of the Israeli's political, social and scientific spheres.

I am honored (and financially relieved) to be an ISEF fellow.
