Fellowship will send Arizona teens to Israel

Jewish National Fund has announced the Schwartz-Hammer Alexander Muss High School in Israel Impact Fellowship Program, which provides scholarships to send Arizona teenagers on a summer program to Israel.  Applicants must raise $1,000 through JNF’s “Plant Your Way” program.

The fellowship, which includes everything from on-campus housing to field- trip costs, was established in order to give Arizona high school Jewish teens the opportunity to explore their connection to the land, people, history and culture of Israel. Alexander Muss High School in Israel is a college preparatory summer abroad program that uses Israel as the classroom. Through the support of the Schwartz-Hammer Foundation, five Arizona high school seniors will be selected to become Impact Fellows.

Applications must be received by Jan. 12, 2015. For more information visit http://jnf.org/azfellowship or contact Deb Rochford at drochford@jnf.org or 480-447-8100, ext. 980.
