Many scholarship recipients have served over 100 days in reserves, with some missing their first or even second semesters due to their service commitments. President Boaz Ganor thanked both the Pitmans and the reservists for their dedication and hard work. Jonathan Davis outlined our commitment to supporting these reservists academically and psychologically. The scholarships serve as a lifeline for these brave young defenders, enabling them to pursue their academic dreams while continuing to serve their country.
