We’re proud to announce that ITC is naming its Tel Aviv Campus after the Patrick & Lina Drahi Foundation (PLFA) as part of our fruitful collaboration.
As part of this exciting new partnership, the Drahi Foundation will be offering scholarships to exceptional ITC Data Science and Full Stack Development students over the next four years. Drahi Foundations’ contribution allows ITC to upgrade its professional and academic courses as well as support improvements to the campus ensuring the continual accommodation of our growing student base.
ITC is committed to adding courses for students in the Data Science and Full-Stack Development tracks and will continue to lead professional tech training in Israel and worldwide. The partnership with the Drahi Foundation allows ITC to maintain and advance its cutting-edge training and placement model bringing newcomers to Israel and talented Israelis to reach in-demand positions in Israeli High-Tech field.
Together with the Drahi Foundation, this contribution also gives ITC students an opportunity to prioritize their training, and only pay tuition once they land a job and reach a meaningful salary. ITC is the only tech training organization in Israel to offer this unique financing model, known as the Income Share Agreement (ISA).
Background on the foundation
Established in 2014, Patrick & Lina Drahi’s private family foundation, PLFA, strives to support science and technology students and initiate innovative projects. The Drahi Foundation’s values and vision perfectly align with ITC’s mission to educate and introduce talented individuals into Israel’s tech hub. ITC looks forward to many more joint efforts through our partnership with the PLFA.
Israel Tech Challenge was founded to address an industry-wide shortage of tech talent by enabling selected professionals of all ages and backgrounds to train and work in the most sought-after technical positions in the tech industry. ITC’s secret sauce is the ability to identify potential in talent from all over the world with a focus on under represented minorities and offering a unique, intensive and elite training program modeled after IDF’s 8200 intelligence units and designed in close partnership with the world’s leading tech companies.
