Deadline near for JFGO Israel travel scholarships
March 23, 2018
The application deadline is approaching for 2018-19 Ronald Colman Israel Scholarships, administered by the Jewish Federation of Greater Orlando.
The Federation will accept online applications through 5 p.m. March 30. Applicants should visit http://www.jfgo.org/jten for details. A review committee will select the scholarship recipients, who will be notified no later than April 30.
The Ronald Colman Israel Scholarship Fund was made possible by a generous endowment established by the Colman family to encourage Jewish teens in the Greater Orlando area to participate in educational experiences in Israel. The Federation administers the program and awards the scholarships each spring. The program is open to all Jewish teens in grades 9 to 12 who are permanent residents of Central Florida. Gap-year programs are not eligible.
Additional application criteria:
• Teens who apply must be traveling on an organized educational youth/peer Israel program, including adventure travel, community service, volunteer work or academic programming.
• Family trips are not eligible. Scholarship funds are for programs in summer 2018 and program during the 2018-19 school year (such as the Alexander Muss High School in Israel). Funds will be distributed directly to the sponsoring organization of the selected trip.
For additional information, please contact the Jewish Federation’s Jennifer Cohen at firstname.lastname@example.org or 407-645-5933, ext. 239.
