Engineering studies at the College are at a high academic level and students are required to invest time in the preparation of exercises, laboratories, reading of background material, etc even beyond formal study hours. In order to enable students to focus on their studies and “study with a clear mind”, the College grants economic aid scholarships. A scholarship committee determines the criteria for receiving scholarships and their amount. Special consideration is given to soldiers released from combat units.
Students that receive economic aid scholarships are required to participate in social projects for the community four hours a week during the academic year. Student involvement in the community is very important. The College, together with the Municipality of Jerusalem and various funds, will initiate community social projects for students. The average amount of scholarship assistance during the 2005-2006 academic year was NIS 4,200. The Dean of Students should be contacted to receive application forms for these scholarships. The forms may also be downloaded from the College’s web site.
Entitled students are required to participate in various projects with community involvement, including the mentoring of high school students at committee centers and hostels as well as volunteering with various associations such as the Cancer Prevention Society, WIZO, Yad Sarah, hospitals, Magen David Adom, associations that promote welfare issues, etc. The students also participate in supplementing study material for students who have served in the reserves, mentoring of students at the College’s Preparatory School, participation in student board activities and the College’s students' entertainment team.
