The awards are intended to foster close collaboration between individuals from both countries. Scholars must be enrolled full-time at a university in the United Kingdom to be eligible for this award. Scholarships will not be offered to anyone who does not provide documentation of their UK address as well as a UK bank account in their name.
About the Scholarship:
The AIA was founded in 1949 by Brigadier General Sir Wyndham Deedes, the first Chief Secretary to the British High Commissioner to Mandate Palestine, who believed that support for the State of Israel should not be limited to Jews alone. Today, the AIA is an autonomous organization that has the active support of people of all faiths and none across the political spectrum.
The principal goal of the Association is to promote a broader and better understanding of Israel in the UK; to stimulate interactions between the two nations at all levels; and to generally support initiatives that create goodwill between British and Israeli citizens. From 2006 through 2010, the AIA organized a series of regular lecture tours by Prof Shai Feldman of Brandeis University every two years. He was previously the Director of Tel Aviv University’s Jaffee Center for Strategic Studies. General Amos Yadlin, former head of Israeli Military Intelligence and deputy commander of the Israeli Air Force, the center’s current director, gave a round table briefing for the AIA in 2012 on “The Security Challenges of the State of Israel in the Twenty-First Century with a Focus on the Iranian Nuclear Threat.” Feldman is currently a member of Harvard University’s Belfer Center for Science and International Affairs’ Board of Directors.  Feldman received £33,604 from AIA in 2009 and £81,556 in 2010. It’s unclear whether this money went entirely to Friedman or was also used for general organization expenses. Feldman spoke at the Conservative Middle East Council, the Henry Jackson Society, and the Israel Diaspora Trust in 2012. The Anglo-Israel Association provides a limited number of travel scholarships to Israel each year. The awards’ goal is to enable graduates of British universities who are typically residing in the UK to do an intensive study of some element of life in Israel (sociological, scientific, cultural, economic, etc.). The Founder, In 1883, Sir Wyndham Deedes was born in Kent, England. He was a brigadier general in Cairo in 1915, where he attempted to gather Arab assistance against the Turks. From 1920 to 1922, he was the chief secretary of High Commissioner Sir Herbert Samuel. He vehemently criticized the Arab riots of 1921 and authorized the recruitment of Jewish volunteers to assist in the defense of Jaffa and Tel Aviv. In 1923, he retired from the military and relocated to London, England. He established the British Association for the Jewish National Home in Palestine in 1943. He founded the Anglo-Israel Association a year after the establishment of the state of Israel in 1949. He passed away in 1956. Deedes was a devout Christian who believed that the only way for Christians to atone for their treatment of Jews was to try to establish a Jewish state in Palestine. In 1918, he met and became close friends with Chaim Weizmnann, a Zionist leader who went on to become Israel’s first president. Deedes was invited for a two-week visit of Poland by the Executive of the Zionist Organization of Poland in 1926. The Kenneth Lindsay Scholarship Trust provides grants to assist Israeli students to further their study in any topic at universities and institutions of higher learning in the United Kingdom. The prizes are intended to encourage close engagement between citizens of both countries.
