The Feinberg Graduate School, the degree-granting institution at the Weizmann Institute of Science, was founded in 1958. The Weizmann Institute is recognized as an institution of higher education by the Council for Higher Education in Israel. The Scientific Council of the Institute may grant only advanced degrees (MSc and PhD degrees) in physics, chemistry, life sciences, mathematics, computer science, and science teaching. The Feinberg Graduate School is also responsible for postdoctoral fellowships at the Weizmann Institute of Science. Feinberg advocates full equality for all students, including students with disabilities, as detailed below.
