Scholarships ranging from $1,000 to $3,000 to Seattle, Washington youth for travel to Israel on an educational youth/peer program, consisting of volunteer work, adventure travel, study, and community service. The scholarships are based solely on financial need. Funding is intended to develop teens' Jewish identity and enrich their Jewish education.

The Jewish Federation of Greater Seattle now requires all recipients of Israel scholarships to return to Seattle at the end of their Israel program and complete an allotted number of volunteer or community engagement hours in the community.

Federation scholarships average between $1,000 and $3,000 and may go slightly higher in exceptional circumstances.

To be eligible for the Jewish Federation of Greater Seattle Israel Scholarship, you must:

- Be a permanent resident of Washington State and return to Seattle upon completion of your program for a period of time that will allow you to complete the required volunteer hours.
- Participate in an Israel program that starts anytime from the summer after ninth grade through the summer after high school graduation. Gap year programs are not eligible.
- Select an Israel program that is an educational youth/peer program (adventure travel, community service, volunteer work, academic program). Family trips are not covered. Jewish programs to other countries are not eligible.
- Seek additional sources of scholarship funding from your synagogue (if you are affiliated) and your Israel program or sponsoring organization. If you do not seek additional funding, you will be asked to do so before your application is reviewed.

Program guidelines:

The Israel Need-Based Scholarship is based solely on demonstrated financial need. In order to be considered for a need-based scholarship, applicants must provide all requested financial information.

Applicants are expected to contribute to the cost of tuition. The Israel Scholarship Committee does not grant full scholarships.

Scholarships cannot be awarded on a retroactive basis.

Do not pay the balance of your sponsoring Israel program until you receive confirmation on your award amount. Unless the Federation receives an invoice from your Israel program showing balance due in excess of your scholarship award, your award will be canceled.
