Scholarship Assistance

The Greater Miami Jewish Federation offers need-based assistance for Miami-Dade County residents, ages 15-26. Funding is one time only, and awards are based on need and length of an approved Israel program, which must contain Jewish educational content. Applicants must complete and return an application, along with their family's financial information (IRS form 1040), and a letter of acceptance or invoice from the program.
