The government authorized on Sunday a bill to provide monetary assistance packages to help demobilized soldiers and those who completed national service to pursue higher education.

The package is intended to completely cover the cost of the first year of studies, and will total NIS 9,300 per recipient.

This investment of NIS 25 million will be coupled with a NIS 80 million investment toward high education in the periphery.  

Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu said that this decision came as part of a revolution his government is mobilizing in the country's education system.
