Israel Experience Scholarships
Need-based scholarships are available through JET and The Jewish Federation of Greater Washington for long-term educational experiences in Israel for current 10th-12th graders who reside in the Greater Washington area and college and post-graduate students who either are permanent residents of or attend college in the Greater Washington area. Priority is given to those applying for full semester or year-long programs.
In order to be considered for scholarships, applicants must provide the following:
- A brochure, if available, describing your program of study in Israel
- A detailed personal statement describing your reasons for choosing this program
- Two letters of reference
- A copy of last year's tax returns (Form 1040) and a W-2 for yourself AND your parents, if they claim you as a dependent.
Decisions are made by JET's Israel Experience Scholarships committee.
