Scholarships - Jewish Federation

The Jewish Federation of Greater Seattle supports children’s formative Jewish experiences by awarding scholarships, which lower financial barriers to┬áparticipating in programs that strengthen Jewish identity and give kids a strong start on their Jewish journeys. Federation programs include:

  • Need-based scholarships for attending Jewish overnight summer camp
  • One Happy Camper incentive grants for first-time campers
  • Teen Israel Experience scholarships enabling youths to experience Israel through organized trips
  • Jewish day-school scholarships defraying tuition costs (Jewish day-school scholarship funding is granted directly to schools. Please contact your school directly for more information about financial assistance.)
