JCF seeks applicants for Israel trip grant

The Jewish Community Foundation of Southern Arizona is now accepting applications for the 2016 Goldman Family Israel Scholarship. The deadline for submissions is 5 p.m. on Wednesday, March 9.

The Elliot S. Goldman Family Israel Scholarship Fund and the Goldman Family Israel Scholarship Fund (endowment funds held at JCF) together provide the annual Goldman Family Israel Scholarship to be used by one individual toward a trip to Israel. Only organizations may apply. The scholarship committee reviews applications submitted by qualified nonprofit organizations and selects the organization to receive the award. It is the responsibility of the organization to select the individual participant.

The maximum award is $2,500 for one individual to participate in an Israel trip within one year from when the grant is awarded. The scholarship is not limited by age, ethnicity, geography or any other specific demographic.

Awards will be announced in April, with funding available May 2. The trip must take place by May 2017.
