CFJS Summer 2008 Israel Experience Grants
Want to be in Israel this summer? Still trying to scratch together the last few dollars to make it happen?
The Canadian Federation of Jewish Students would like to help you!
In this, the 60th year of Israel's existence, CFJS is offering a grant towards the costs related to a trip to Israel during the summer 2008. CFJS understands the importance of visiting Israel as well as the financial burden this can sometimes place. As such, we are committed to helping students realize their dream of visiting Israel- especially during this exciting time in Israel's history. The maximum grant will be $1000 and will be dependent on several factors including, but not limited to: the number of applicants and the cost of the intended Israel program.
Upon acceptance of the grant and completion of the Israel program, the recipients will return to their campus and undertake an Israel related initiative. The initiatives may be carried out in cooperation with local Hillel/JSA, IAC, Israel Alumni Associations, or any variety of campus clubs. The initiative should be creative and may take on the form of an awareness campaign, a fundraiser, or a one-time program. Regardless of the chosen initiative, it must engage other students and further their knowledge about Israel. In addition, CFJS will help you fund the initiative. This should be an exciting project following an exciting Israel experience.
The grant is available to any Canadian student interested in visiting Israel in the summer of 2008. Applicants may participate on an organized trip; work at a summer internship, a volunteer experience, or an educational experience. All applicants must be returning to a Canadian post-secondary institution in the fall semester of 2008. (Exceptions will be considered)
