Students at Sapir and Tel Hai colleges that are on the line of conflict will receive a significant benefit – a subsidy of 100% of this year's tuition. This benefit will be provided as part of a support program of half a billion shekels approved for institutions of higher education in Israel.

The Planning and Budgeting Committee (PBC) formulated, together with the CHE and with the support of the Minister of Education and the Student Union, a plan to support academia in Israel at a cost of about half a billion shekels. The plan will reduce as much as possible the dropout rate and degree dragging of students recruited to the reserves, while at the same time ensuring the stability and resilience of institutions of higher education located in the combat and conflict zones.

The program focuses on assisting students studying in institutions adjacent to the war and conflict zones in both the north and south, with an emphasis on Sapir Academic College and Tel Hai Academic College, by funding 100% of tuition fees for those institutions. Funding will be done by full support to the institutions, in order to grant scholarships in the amount of full annual tuition fees to all students at the institution in the coming academic year, <>.

In addition, and in order to ensure the stability and resilience of these institutions, the approved plan will provide them with a budgetary safety net for them for the next three academic years, which will ensure that the institution's budget is supplemented so that it will be adjusted to the number of students in the previous academic year 13-6. If a significant decline is found in the number of students in additional institutions budgeted by the PBC, the PBC will examine expanding the safety net for these institutions as well.

The plan also includes support for institutions to provide a broad response to prevent dropouts and degree dragging for students serving in the reserves and their spouses with children (up to age 000), in light of the wide scope of reserve recruitment among male and female students, in order to help the institutions provide a suitable teaching system for that public.

Each institution will receive a budget share according to the number of students serving in the reserves at that institution, which will be available for a variety of uses, including mental and psychological assistance, completion of lessons, tutoring, opening of special test dates, digital access to materials and lectures, simultaneous studies of a variety of groups, and more.

Another significant component of the program that aims to continue assisting students serving in the reserves is increasing the assistance fund in 5000-<> to provide an additional <>,<> scholarships each year, in the amount of NIS <>,<>, to be directed to reservists.

Education Minister and CHE Chairman Yoav Kish: "Reservists are the spearhead of Israeli society and constitute the human defensive wall of Israeli citizens. Since the beginning of the war, many students have been recruited to the IDF reserves. Every effort must be made so that the students who serve in the reserves will not be harmed as a result of their service, and vice versa – that they will be rewarded accordingly."

Chairman of the PBC, Prof. Yossi Makori: "The program ensures the stability and future of higher education in Israel, and constitutes an expression of confidence in the importance of academia precisely at these times. I am particularly proud of the scope of support approved for students serving in the reserves, who in practice ensure the future of academia in Israel. May everyone return home safely soon and visit the benches of higher education, including those near the war zones."

Chairman of the National Union of Students Elhanan Felheimer: "In the complex reality that afflicts every home in Israel these days, we bring important news that will strengthen the certainty of the student public in particular and the higher education system in general. The program is, first and foremost, an expression of our appreciation for the student public, those who struggle against the enemy at the front and those who help strengthen the home front. It will provide certainty, prevent dropouts and increase economic aid."
