“These new scholarships will enable us to recruit top students of all backgrounds from Israel to study at Oxford, and we look forward to welcoming the first Frost Israel scholars to the Oxford community,” Oxford University Vice Chancellor Prof. Andrew Hamilton said on Wednesday.

The first Frost-Israel scholars will begin their studies in October, and over the next four years the Frost Scholarship Program will continue to offer four scholarships for study at Oxford each year.

The scholarship will cover all of the university fees as well as a grant for living costs of £14,057.

Frost scholars will take part in an exclusive weeklong orientation program at one of Oxford’s oldest colleges, Exeter College, to introduce them to academic life at the university just before the start of their studies.

“The Frost fellowships will be much to the benefit of both countries. Israeli scientists will get to do research at one of the world’s top universities.

Oxford will get top Israeli scientists into its laboratories.

And the UK/Israel partnership will be strengthened by the growing collaboration, friendship and respect between the scientific communities,” British Ambassador Matthew Gould said.

There are currently 24 Israeli graduate students studying at Oxford.

Talented candidates are encouraged to apply to Oxford as soon as possible to begin their studies in October.
