Young Heroes Scholarship
The Young Heroes Scholarship is an assistance program developed by Dr. Ben Talei to aid our young heroes through a medical career. It was started in early 2015 in order to help an inspirational young military hero cover her tuition and living expenses while trying to attain her medical education at Ariel University.
Interestingly, the funds are donated through cosmetic surgery. Dr. Talei involves his patients in this endeavor by guiding them to donate half of the surgical fee directly to the charity instead of to him. This makes half of the surgical fee tax deductible as a charitable donation, effectively lowering the cost of cosmetic surgery to the patient.
This support program is not designed just for military heroes, however. It will continue in the future in support of deserving young heroes pursuing any career in medicine.
