Scholarships

In addition to the $3,000 R1V subsidy that each participant is eligible for regardless of financial status, participants are welcome to apply for additional funds through our Seminar Scholarship Fund.

 

Ramah Israel and the Ramah camps are strongly committed to the ideal that no qualified participant should be prevented from joining Seminar due to lack of funds. To this end, we have developed the Seminar Scholarship Fund which will enable deserving youth, who would otherwise be unable to do so, to come to Israel.

 

Scholarship applications are due by January 14, 2022

 

*Scholarship applications can be found in your regpack account once you register for Seminar.

 

In addition to our list of funding sources, check out Plant Your Way – an innovative program that will help you save money for a trip to Israel and at the same time raise money for the greening of Israel.

If possible, we ask that you seriously consider a voluntary contribution to the Scholarship Fund. Please check the appropriate space on the application form.
