Grants and Scholarships

 

Masa Israel works to make it as easy as possible for Jewish young adults to go to Israel.
We offer grants and/or scholarships to help make the experience more affordable, and collect information about other grants and scholarships available for long-term Israel programs from third party organizations.  
 
Masa Israel participants on a gap year program between the ages of 18-20 are eligible for a $500 grant which will be allocated directly to their program provider toward tuition. Masa Israel participants on study abroad programs and participants between the ages of 21-30 are eligible to apply for universal grants toward the cost of your program. All Masa Israel participants, ages 18-30 are eligible to apply for additional needs-based scholarships. Your grant/scholarship will be deducted from the total cost of your program. The amount available depends on your country of origin, age, and the length of your program.
