A. David Ben-Gurion’s Leadership: Theoretical, Structural, Historical or Comparative Aspects.

B. The Urban Labor Movement: Society, Politics and Ideology in Israel


The ‘David Ben-Gurion’s Political Thought’ research group will be giving out two doctoral scholarships from the Center for Israel Studies at the Ben-Gurion Research Institute for the Study of Israel and Zionism, Ben-Gurion University of the Negev. Each scholarship is of 66,528 NIS per year.

The scholarships are designed for outstanding students from the fields of Humanities and Social Sciences, who completed their thesis-track Master’s Degree with a grade of 90 and above (a direct PhD track for those who completed their BA summa cum laude will be considered).

The doctoral candidate will take part in a research group led by Prof. Avi Bareli. Group members – researchers from the fields of Humanities and Social Sciences – will examine the role David Ben-Gurion’s leadership had played in shaping Israeli society and politics, as well as his leadership as the Labor Movement transitioned from settlement to sovereign state.
