The Jewish Foundation of Cincinnati
Grants are available for Jewish young adults ranging in age from 16 to 26 to enable them to visit Israel. The grant is divided into two parts: one that provides funding for high school students, and the other that provides funding for post high school young adults until the age of 26 to travel to Israel. The goal of the funding is to encourage participants in the programs to experience Israel in a meaningful and educational way.
The Jewish Foundation of Cincinnati is responsible for this program that is unique and special to Cincinnati and the Diaspora as it is the only Foundation to provide funds of up to $11,500 per Jewish young adult for travel to Israel on two peer educational programs, once in high school and again post-high school. With more than 20 high school and young adult approved trip providers, the program has the widest array of options, including community wide Federation-sponsored high school programs to meet and travel with other Cincinnatians.
The Foundation is pleased to offer an unlimited number of grants, with high school grants of up to $6,500 per student and post-high school grants of up to $5000 per Jewish young adult, between the ages of 16-26 to travel and experience Israel.

* Wide array of trip provider choices
* Unlimited number of grants each year
* Learn about, travel to, and connect with Israel
* Meet new friends and people from all over the world
* Increase sense of Jewish identity
