TAU International has been significantly expanded and recast as the hub for all international activities at TAU – study programs, research partnerships, student exchange, visiting scholars and
conferences. The school is enabling TAU to share Israeli know-how with the world, strengthen the connection of young Diaspora Jews to Israel, and cultivate non-Jewish Israel advocates. TAU seeks to further expand, enrich and diversify enrolment and programming at the school.
Target: Creating at least 10 more degree programs taught in English, preferably with top international partners, within the next 5 years.
SOLD TAU International: An infusion of funding will enable it to expand enrolment, attract top students, introduce new study programs, provide better services, and become a “one-stop shop” for visiting faculty and students.
Columbia-TAU Scholarship Fund supporting the Dual BA Program in Liberal Arts: Bringing the prestige of the Ivy League to TAU, this pioneering program must give out substantial scholarships to succeed. Students will spend two years at TAU followed by another two at Columbia and will receive BAs from both universities.
Master’s Programs: We have 19 English-taught master’s degree programs ranging from Middle Eastern Studies and Archaeology to Conflict Resolution and Diplomacy & Security Studies. Prices are varied.
New Undergraduate Programs: TAU is launching many more 1st degree programs, such as a BA in Management and a BSc in Environment and Earth Sciences.
Graduate Student Exchange Fund: Will enable PhD and post-doc exchange between TAU and the donor’s home university for periods of 3-6 months, on a competitive basis, with the goal of strengthening long-term research ties.
International Sports Scholarships: Aimed at attracting individuals from countries worldwide who are both talented athletes and high-promise students, and are willing to contribute to raising the level of sports performance in Israel.
SOLD TAU-Northwestern Executive LLM Program in Public and International Law: Offers a master’s in law in both Israel and the US to Israeli public sector legal professionals, who then apply their newfound knowledge toward enhancing Israel’s judicial system.
International Scholarship Fund (BA, MA, PhD and post-doc levels): Will help TAU attract the top candidates from abroad and diversify the student body; could target the donor’s home country.
