Federation Offers Teen and YA Israel Stipends

The Allied Jewish Federation of Colorado (Federation) is offering a limited number of stipends to teens and young adults participating in peer group trips to Israel in 2011. While the subsidies are not solely need-based, the funds are targeted to assist those who cannot participate without financial support from the community.

“The Israel Community Ambassadors Program is designed to encourage and develop knowledge, awareness and commitment to the Jewish community and to Israel,” said Janet Sherman, director of Federation’s Israel, National & Overseas Board.

The stipends will be awarded to those applicants between the ages of 16 and 30 who demonstrate an ability and willingness to become ambassadors for Israel in Colorado upon their return. Applicants must be Colorado residents to be eligible. An approved program is an organized educational experience in Israel that focuses on strengthening one’s Jewish identity and connection to Israel.

Applications are due April 29, 2011, and decisions will be announced by Monday, May 16, 2011. You can download the application and read the guidelines here.  For questions, please contact Janet Sherman at jsherman@ajfcolorado.org or 303-316-6490.
