ayalimThe Ayalim Association believes that bringing students to settle in the Negev and the Galilee is a national undertaking of supreme importance. The association provides incentives such as scholarships and subsidized housing to encourage students to settle in such areas.  After a period of living in the periphery, the association believes that students will become attached to the area and its people and that once they complete their studies a large share of them will chose to make their lives in the periphery.  The association also works together with the Prime Minister’s Office and the Office of the Vice Prime Minister to promote incentives for graduates of the project that wish to remain in the Negev and the Galilee.
