In Israel, the higher education community has grown from 1,635 students and two major institutions in 1948 to 53,000 students (a large percentage of the potential student population) and seven major institutions in 1975. During this period, a pattern of private funding from abroad has shifted to a system of support by the state as the need to balance national manpower planning considerations with the need for local institutional autonomy has resulted in the formation of a University Planning and Grants Committee. Serving as liason between the government, which now funds 80 percent of higher education budgets, and the university communities, the University Planning and Grants Committee promises to facilitate further growth of higher education in Israel.
