Initiated by Yehuda Zisapel, one of Israel’s first technology entrepreneurs, the program offers talented young people an opportunity to reach engineering or science studies, even if they don’t meet the admissions criteria or cannot afford the cost of higher education. Rashi operated the program from the pilot at the Technion through an expansion to additional universities, finally handing in over to the Council for Higher Education. Renamed “High-tech Achievements”, the program continues with funding by the Defense Ministry’s Discharged Soldiers Unit and the Prime Minister’s Office.
