Israel Study/Travel Grants and Scholarships

The Jewish Alliance Israel Desk supports opportunities for travel to Israel. We match people to programs, provide grants and scholarships, offer general travel resources, and more.

 

Israel Study/Travel Grants and Scholarships

We are committed to supporting study/travel opportunities for Jews in high school, gap-year, college, and post-secondary programs (through age 26), thanks to the generosity of donors (see below for full list).

 

Applicant Information

Applicant must be: of high school, college, or post-secondary age; a resident of greater Rhode Island, planning to study/travel in a recognized study/travel program; a donor* in good standing to the Annual Campaign of the Jewish Alliance of Greater Rhode Island.

Applicants who have previously received two years of funding may be considered, however only pending the availability of funds.

A recommendation is required from one of the following: rabbi/education, Jewish youth group advisor, public/private school teacher, family friend/mentor/personal contact.

Recipients commit to writing a brief article sharing their Israel experience for The Jewish Voice.

Recipients commit to speaking/presenting to a youth group, at a community gathering, and/or serving as a representative of the study/travel program.

In the event that the study/travel program is cancelled or the recipient no longer wishes to participate upon receiving an Alliance award, recipients will return all Alliance-issued awards.

Attach a brief program description upon application submission.

*Please note, no pledge is too small to apply. A donor in good standing is one whose immediate family has made a pledge to this year’s Alliance Annual Campaign, and is current with past pledges and other Alliance financial commitments.
