The award is named for Mount Scopus in Jerusalem, the historical site of the university, and recognizes extraordinary support from American residents to The Hebrew University.

The 2014 gala, held Jan. 18, 2014, raised funds for The Edmond and Lily Safra Center for Brain Sciences (ELSC) at The Hebrew University.

Today the University has a student body of 23,000, a faculty of 970 and attracts students from Israel as well as from 70 countries around the world.
