Cultivating  the next generation of Israel Leadership in the UK

In a world where opinions and ideologies are established in universities, there is a need for a strong and balancing Israeli voice. The Israel Leadership Foundation-ILF is the first of its kind in scope and prestige and it provides individual scholarships of £3000-£8000 to the next generation of leaders.

During their academic experience, the Israeli fellows will transform the way in which Israel is being discussed, while educating and inspiring others around them, Jewish and non-Jewish alike. By utilizing their knowledge and background, these Israelis will share a fresh and personal perspective, counter antisemitism and balance the conversation. Upon graduation, these Israeli leaders will bring back with them a global understanding of markets and cultures, and connections to future decision-makers, which will enhance the Israeli economy and society.

About us

Graduation Ceremony

We represent a group of Israeli leaders and C-level executives who studied in the UK. After being exposed to harmful rhetoric and acts of ignorance related to our home country, we returned to Israel with the will to make a difference. We believe in the voice of Israelis, and their ability to make a change. By being involved on campus, our  Fellows will make a much-needed difference and we hope, could educate about Israel and Israelis through their personal story.
