Israel Grants (For High School And College Students)

This grant reflects the Federation’s desire to increase the number of those who will have the opportunity to go to Israel. This is a one-time grant. However, second year and future year grants will also be given if funds are available (first time applicants have priority; then second time, etc).

Israel Grants Qualifications and Guidelines

Grant applications are due on December 15. Grants are in amounts up to $3,500 for year programs and $2,500 for summer programs per applicant (up to one-half of the program cost). Grants will be awarded primarily on merit based upon the applicant’s motivations and achievements as measured by the response to the applicant’s questions and to personal interview(s) with the selection committee. The requesting family should be a donor to the Federation’s annual campaign and their account should be in good standing.
