JFGS-Teen Israel Scholarship Applications Due April 19
The third round of 2012 teen Israel scholarship applications are due on April 19, 2012. This is the last application deadline for summer trips as applications must be submitted at least three months prior to the teen’s date of departure. Israel scholarships through the Jewish Federation are need based, but a wide variety of criteria is considered when reviewing each application.
To be eligible for an Israel Teen Scholarship, teens must be a permanent resident of Washington State, participate in an Israel program from the summer after ninth grade through high school graduation, select an Israel program that is an education youth/peer program and seek additional sources of scholarship funding.Those who are granted a scholarship must complete volunteer service upon returning from Israel and must also write blog posts for, and submit photos to the Jewish Federation. Israel Scholarship awardees are granted on average between $1,000 and $3,000 toward their Israel program.
