Scholarship Guidelines

We know that Jewish summer camp and Israel experiences are some of the most meaningful and life-changing experiences for kids, teens and young adults—and some of the most expensive.

We want to help.

The Minneapolis Jewish Federation offers a number of needs-based scholarships to assist with the cost of Israel travel and camp tuition.

Mort and Merle Kane Scholarship

Helping teachers to exchange ideas

The scholarships are intended to promote teaching excellence of Twin Cities’ Jewish educators, encouraging teachers to attend course work, conferences, seminars, and workshops outside of their own schools, that allow them to study and exchange ideas with other education professionals. Applicants need to agree to share their experiences with their peers and continue as educators in the Twin Cities Jewish Community for at least two years following the program.
