Each summer eighty recent school-leavers from around the world participate in the Dr. Bessie Lawrence International Summer Science Institute (ISSI) at the Weizmann Institute.
They spend four weeks working alongside Weizmann Institute scientists on real research projects, get the opportunity to explore Israel and make lifelong friends. They also have the chance to spend a week at a field school where they trek through the desert and investigate the unique ecosystem and wildlife of Israel.
Weizmann UK sends ten students each year to participate in the programme which has been running since 1969.
Consuelo and Anthony Brooke, who have been supporters of the Weizmann Institute over a number of years, have recently made a commitment to support British students to attend the ISSI at the Weizmann Institute by funding their scholarships.
Talking of their decision to help British students to attend this unique educational programme in Israel, Consuelo Brooke said:
“We have long been admirers of the extraordinary science undertaken at the Weizmann and welcome the opportunity to help young British students to experience this first hand before going on to study science at university.”
