Our role is to support highly-motivated and tenacious students to access and complete their university education, so that they will get good well-paid jobs and improve their financial situation, that of their families and hopefully that of their communities one day. Scholarship recipients become beacons of hope to the other young people in their community, inspiring them to work harder and aim for the top. The Moshal Scholarship Program operates in South Africa, Israel and the Ukraine.
We offer generous scholarships to students in a select range of subjects for the duration of their degrees including:
- IT and Computer Science
- Medicine and Health Sciences
- Natural Sciences
The scholarship covers tuition fees, accommodation, textbooks and we provide a living allowance for students who fulfill our criteria for the duration of their university studies.
- Intrinsic to the ‘contract’ between the Moshal Program and its scholarship recipients is the understanding that in return for our funding of their university degree, they will do everything in their power to achieve the highest grades possible for them.
- We also expect our students to participate in our Moshal community, meet regularly with our psycho-social coordinators, attend our additional training courses and join our annual events. Students are also encouraged to volunteer in the Program or their community from time to time.
- We do not expect our students to pay us back but we inculcate a philosophy of ‘’paying it forward’’ and we expect those students who can, to help others in future. The values of the Program are very important and include responsibility, accountability, community, inclusion, tolerance and hard work.
The Moshal Scholarship Program is highly personalised. Martin Moshal and the Moshal Scholarship Team take an interest in every individual student and every student’s situation is considered on a case by case basis.
Established in 2009 by Martin Moshal, the Moshal Scholarship Program currently provides scholarships to over 909 Moshal Scholars in Israel, South Africa and the Ukraine to enable determined young people from challenging backgrounds to attend the top universities in their home countries.
