The Israel Higher Education Council approved a $ 40.4 million plan to encourage academic excellence and leadership among Ethiopian-Israeli students.

The multiyear plan to help students is part of the Israeli Government Policy to Promote the Integration of Citizens of Ethiopia in Israel into the Israeli Society. It includes broad support from the pre-academic stage, through to baccalaureate, advanced studies and hiring of senior academic staff.

The goal is to increase the number of Ethiopian-Israeli baccalaureate students by about 40 percent, from 2,500 to approximately 3,500 in five years.

The main obstacles impeding the integration of Ethiopian-Israeli students into the higher education system include the lack of pre-academic information, guidance and guidance; a low percentage of license holders who meet the limit established by the universities; and high dropout rates between the first and second year.
