Now in its fourth year, the Halutz Initiative serves as an incubator for a new kind of pioneer: forward-thinking, entrepreneurial, socially minded supporters of Israel equipped with leadership qualities and a nuanced understanding of the most critical issues of the day. 

Through virtual meetings and an intensive week-long seminar in Israel led by scholars and scientists from Ben-Gurion University of the Negev, the program prepares a select group of promising individuals to turn their passions into practical solutions – for BGU, the Negev,​ Israel, and the world.​

Unlock your potential to help build a better world
