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.
