Israel Scholarships and Grants

Israel Scholarships and Grants


The Jewish Federation is proud to provide subsidy scholarships and grants for educational initiatives so students can participate in approved Israel Experience programs. Nothing makes Jewish identity and history come alive for young people like an Israel Experience Program.

Israel is a complex nation of many people, places and beliefs. With a JFGI scholarship, I experienced Israel to its fullest, and now feel the call of my people to the land, love for the country, and determination to make it a just nation.
