Canadian philanthropist gives Israeli graduate students means to reach the top

Abstract:
Eleven Israeli students pursuing advanced degrees in the interdisciplinary and applied sciences, education, architecture and urban planning were awarded fellowships on Thursday night ranging between $21,500 and $28,500 each by the Azrieli Foundation.

The Canadian philanthropic organization, established by real estate magnate David Azrieli, is aimed at minimizing the "brain drain" of top Israeli (and some non-Israeli) graduate students, and helping them to excel. The fellowships were distributed in a ceremony at Tel Aviv's Azrieli Center attended by the donor and Education Minister Yuli Tamir.

Haim Suchowsky, studying for his PhD at the Weizmann Institute of Science, specializing in quantum coherent control of atoms and molecules with ultra-short laser pulses, aimed at the development of nanotech applications and non-invasive imaging technologies.
