The Buchmann-Mehta School of Music International Program for Outstanding Foreign Students was established in the summer of 2008.


The program aims to provide outstanding international students with the opportunity to live and study in Tel Aviv under optimal conditions. Students participating in the school orchestra will be granted a full-tuition scholarship. A limited number of students who demonstrate outstanding level of performance or who play an instrument that is designated essential to the orchestra's activity will also be eligible for a living stipend.


Students accepted to the program have the privilege of studying under the umbrella of Israel's largest university, Tel Aviv University, as well as one of the world's leading orchestras, the Israel Philharmonic Orchestra. The faculty is comprised of Israel's foremost musicians and pedagogues, many of whom are principal players in the IPO who have achieved international acclaim.
