2017 Summer Camp and Israel Scholarship Information
It's time to plan for 2017 summer programs!
Adath annually awards scholarships to encourage Adath students to participate in Jewish summer camping and Israel programs. The preferred programs are those offered through the Conservative Movement. Eligible students are those who are active participants in Shabbat Morning Program and USY. Merit scholarships are available for students who will have celebrated Bar/Bat Mitzvah by June 2017.
Students who plan to attend the approved programs at Camp Ramah, the Ramah Israel Pilgrimage, the USY Summer in Israel Program, Young Judea camps or programs in Israel, Herzl Camp, Camp Chi or high school programs in Israel sponsored or endorsed by the Conservative Movement, such as Ramah or USY and Alexander Muss High School in Israel Programs, from June 2016 through May 2017, should apply for an Adath Scholarship.
The amount of the merit scholarships and the financial awards depends on the money available to the Scholarship Fund from the L’Chaim appeal and the Adath Jeshurun Foundation, the number of students applying for scholarships, and the costs of the programs.
Scholarship information will be mailed to households with eligible children this month. If you do not receive an information letter by mid-December, and your child is eligible for a scholarship, please call the synagogue office at 952.545.2424 to request an application.
Note: Adath has its own scholarship application. Students who apply for aid elsewhere using the community application also need to complete the Adath application. Some scholarship assistance is also available from individual camps, Programs in Israel and the
Minneapolis Jewish Federation.
Financial aid is available for those applicants whose families demonstrate financial need in order to attend approved programs.
