Tuition & Scholarship Options

Israel Tech Challenge (ITC) is firmly committed to admitting the most highly qualified students who apply to its programs, without regard for their financial circumstances. We currently offer our applicants four types of scholarships, and a new funding model whereby students can join any Fellows program while paying no up-front costs. We are constantly working on developing more ways to assist exceptional applicants to take part in our training courses.

Pay nothing until you make it

Scholarships

We want students to have confidence in their ability to graduate and land a new job, without worrying

about the financial aspects of the programs. For this reason, we’re offering a success-based funding

model that enables students to join a Fellows program without paying tuition up-front.

 

Instead of paying tuition, students can choose to join the program through an

Income Shared Agreement (ISA) and pay a small percentage of their income:

  • – Only once they are employed after the program
  • – Only if they earn more than 14K NIS per month 

If students don’t find a job or don’t reach the level of income required within 24 months after finishing the program, they won’t have to pay back tuition. Alternatively, instead of income-based repayment, students may choose to pay the full tuition up-front.

“I came to ITC to improve my skillset and discover the Israeli Hi-Tech industry. Through this program I’m becoming a Data Scientist and constantly growing, and it wouldn’t have been possible without the scholarship I received.”

Simon Kern, Fellows program student

“Coming to ITC on a MASA scholarship allowed me to concentrate all my energies in studying hard and giving my best to excel during the course, as I knew that economically I was being taken care of. When somebody is giving you an opportunity like this one, the way I see it, you have the obligation to squeeze it to the fullest and be your best version”
