Ben-Gurion University of the Negev (BGU) announced on Sunday the establishment of a scholarship endowment fund in the name of fallen lone soldier Max Steinberg.

Steinberg, a California native, made aliyah and joined the elite Golani 13 brigade as a lone soldier. He was killed in action during Operation Protective Edge last July. 

The scholarship was established in partnership with his parents, Stuart and Evelyn (Evie), and his siblings, Paige and Jake through the American Associates Ben-Gurion University of the Negev (AABGU). 

The Steinberg endowment will provide scholarships to Golani and other combat reservists at BGU in perpetuity, with first preference going to lone soldiers. The family will be part of the decision process to ensure that the receiving students mirror Max’s values and vision.

“We are delighted to know that Max’s legacy will be connected to a university and scholarship program that grants opportunity and promise to the soldiers that have put their lives in harm’s way for the people of Israel,” said Stuart Steinberg. “We know that Max cared deeply for his fellow soldiers and that he would be whole-heartedly supportive of a program that allows soldiers to pursue their passions and create a great future.”
