The Friends of Bezalel program is headed by the Bezalel Academy of Arts and Design, and sponsored and managed by the Rothschild Foundation.

In 2015, four honor graduate students from Bezalel's Department of Fine Arts were selected to participate in the program, and as part of it they will teach art classes in schools in southern Tel Aviv. The program's scholarship offers students a NIS 4,000 (roughly $1,000) monthly stipend, as well as access to their own design space, which they use as a studio and as a place to meet with their students.
