Request a Grant Writer

Travel subsidies of up to $1,000 and scholarships of up to $2,500 to Michigan youth and young adults in eligible communities for trips to Israel. The purpose of the program is to provide financial assistance to local teenagers for yearlong, summer, or semester trips to Israel. Eligible individuals are residents of Washtenaw County.

The Jewish Federation of Greater Ann Arbor values the transformative power of Israel travel experiences for teens. To help make participation in these trips possible, the federation offers two opportunities for financial assistance: The Federation funded Israel Teen Travel Subsidy and the Susan L. Lichter Memorial Endowed Israel Scholarship Fund. The federation invites applicants to apply to both the Travel Subsidy and Lichter Scholarship Fund.

This financial support is provided for summer, semester and yearlong programs, including gap year (between high school and college). Eligible programs must be at least 21 days in length and be organized by an approved provider such as MASA gap year programs and summer/semester programs sponsored by national youth movements. Other eligible programs include those sponsored by educational institutions and those listed on the Jewish Agency’s Israel Experiences website.
