Designed to promote international understanding and offer an educational opportunity to foreign graduate students in need, the Yossi Schiff Memorial Scholarship Fund is a fitting tribute to a young man who cared deeply for the world around him and tried to foster values of mutual respect between people, cultures and nations.
Open to international graduate students with F-1 or J-1 visas pursuing the following careers may apply: social sciences, humanities, medicine, public health, public policy, nursing and environmental sciences.
Students must have a strong academic record and demonstrate outstanding academic and professional promise.
One stipend award of $25,000 will be made.
A student may receive only one Yossi Schiff award, but in extraordinary circumstances a student may be considered for a second award.
