The African Refugee Development Center (ARDC) is a grassroots, community-‐based, non-‐profit organization that was founded in 2004 by African asylum seekers and Israeli citizens with the mission to protect, assist and empower African refugees and asylum seekers in Israel. In 2009, ARDC founded its education project, which focuses on providing individualised assistance and higher education support to African asylum seekers  on the path to achieving their goals. Since that time, ARDC has provided assistance to more than 2,000 students. In 2015, ARDC launched “PREP Up”, a scholarship program aimed at assisting asylum seekers in attaining higher education.


ARDC is offering partial scholarships for African asylum seekers living in Israel who are enrolled in university. Each successful student will receive up to a maximum of 9,500 NIS for one academic school year based on need. Scholarship students will be required to complete 30 hours of community service at an organization chosen by the student. All applications will be reviewed by ARDC’s scholarship committee, an advisory group comprised of former teachers and university administrators.
