"In my last year of the military service, I saw all my friends planning for the years ahead – for higher education. I also dreamed of attending university, but I knew I couldn't afford it, I almost gave up. Today I'm studying here in Bar Ilan University and I hope I’ll be able to offer my children a better life than my parents could give me."
- Ohad, IMPACT! scholarship recipient, Bar Ilan University
"I want to thank you for the opportunity that you have given me to learn and to create a better future for myself. I know that without your help I couldn't have done it. This scholarship helps me to continue studying and to achieve the success that I always wanted."

"I have always been so excited to hear about Gadi’s studies and his life through his emails and phone conversations. In the last year, I heard of his engagement and his interest in continuing on with his education. It is due to Gadi’s dedication and the work of all the young soldiers in Israel that I continue to support the IMPACT! program. For me, being able to give back to the soldiers in the IDF through education is just the beginning – just one way of saying Thank You."
