Requests for grants, including all required documents, must be submitted no later than your program’s halfway point. Requests for needs-based scholarships must be submitted no later than 60 days before the program’s offical start date (or if an exception has been made, no later than one day before the program’s start date). For any request for financial assistance, you must submit my passport number and all documentation required to receive the grant or scholarship no later than the program’s halfway point, or else you will lose your eligibility for financial assistance.
Gap year participants: You must receive approval for your travel voucher before you buy your ticket to Israel. Be sure to apply far enough in advance that you have time to receive notification of your approval and book your flight with Ortal Travel and Tourism. Additionally, if you are considering applying for a needs-based scholarship, you must apply and be approved for the scholarship before you remit your travel voucher, or you will no longer be eligible for the needs-based scholarship.
