A personal perspective:
In Arye's words: " Being an Azrieli Fellow is an experience of quality and responsibility. The Foundation and the wonderful people who run it give tremendous financial, professional and personal support. It is a feeling of finding an ally who understands your dreams and shares them with you. Being a colleague with fellows from different disciplines is mind broadening and is the main contributor to the creation of a network of friends from different academic backgrounds who are dedicated to the same vision".
