Welcome to Americans for Ben-Gurion University’s Southeast Region!

On behalf of our friends and supporters who share a long history of involvement with Israel, we invite you to participate in one of our upcoming local events to get to know Ben-Gurion University of the Negev, ensure the future of higher education in Israel, and help build Israel’s last frontier – the Negev.

Drawn by the bold vision of Israel’s first prime minister, David Ben-Gurion, to make the Negev flourish, BGU is Israel’s most innovative institution of higher learning. Researchers and students are making tremendous advances every day from breakthroughs in stem cell research to developing radically new designs for water desalination membranes.

We look forward to getting to know you and helping you find the best way to connect to BGU. And if you’re planning a trip to Israel, be sure to contact us to arrange a personalized and exciting tour for you.
