Aside from MASA, there are several other options worth exploring for additional funding. We have listed a few ideas here:
Local Jewish Federations (North America) – Many local Jewish Federations have scholarship programs for trips to Israel. We advise applicants to contact their local federation to find out if they provide this. They may also be able to recommend other sources of funding available.
Synagogues – Many synagogues have funds to assist young members in participating in Israel programs. It could be worthwhile for applicants to contact their synagogue and inquire if such financial assistance is available.
Other local Jewish community organizations may have scholarships available or be able to assist in identifying other sources of funding. We recommend applicants contacting their local JCC and any other local Jewish/Zionist Organizations.
