Scholarships for Qualifying Programs in Israel
Jewish Federation of Greater Vancouver is proud to offer grants to local teens and young adults to offset the cost of traveling to Israel on qualifying organized programs. Made possible through funds raised through the Jewish Community Foundation and Jewish Federation, grants aim to encourage participation in qualified programs in Israel and are available to applicants who demonstrate financial need.
Financing for Teen Travel to Israel
In partnership with HFLA, local teens participating in youth travel to Israel can also apply for interest-free trip financing. The goal of this is to help families break up the balance of their trip costs after scholarship into more manageable monthly installments.
