Wyndham Deedes Memorial Travel Scholarship
The Anglo-Israel Association annually awards a limited number of travel
scholarships to Israel. The Scholarship is in memory of its Founder,
the late Brigadier Sir Wyndham Deedes, CMG, DSO who served as Chief
Secretary to the British Mandatory Government of Palestine. The objective
of the awards is to enable graduates of British universities, who are
normally resident in the UK to make an intensive study of some aspect,
(sociological, scientific, cultural, economic, etc.) of life in Israel.
The study should be in an area that would be of direct interest
to those working in that field in the UK.
The scholarships are open to men and women, normally under 35 years
of age, who have graduated from a British university. Preference will be given to those applicants visiting Israel for the first time. Scholarships are not to be used for the funding of full-time degree courses at Israeli Universities. Subjects should be of a secular rather than a religious nature. A short course or activity at an Israeli university is permitted if it forms part of a degree course at a British University. Medical Students wishing to study certain aspects of how hospitals or the health service in general, function in Israel, for a short period will also be considered.
Applicants must undertake to spend at least six weeks in Israel within
twelve months of the date of the award and also to submit a report on their
project of not less than 5,000 words within twelve months of the date
of their return from Israel. The Association retains the right to publish
the reports. Alternatively, students may arrange publication of their
findings in professional journals on or off-line, mount exhibitions or lecture
to their relevant professional body.
Awards are decided by a selection committee that meets annually. The
initial selection procedure is carried out following the closing date,
when those short-listed are informed and given the date and time of
their interview, if required. The interviews take place in London. The closing date
for applicants is 31st July, but exceptions to this timetable can be considered.
Each Scholarship is worth up to £2,000 and is intended to be a
contribution towards the travel and subsistence expenses incurred in
