Group Flags Picture Web

We have waved off this year's ISSI students at the airport. Nine UK based students were once again selected to take part in the Dr. Bessie Lawrence International Summer Science Institute. It is a unique opportunity for talented students who are just about to begin their university career to spend a month working as part of a research team alongside scientists at the Weizmann Institute of Science.

Outside of lab time, students explore explore Israel whilst forging lifelong friendships with over 80 like-minded participants from all over the world.


Thanks to our generous supporters, each year Weizmann UK offers scholarship funded places for UK students to participate in the ISSI programme.

Look out for guest blogs to find out how this year's participants get on.
