Masa Israel Journey works to make it as easy as possible for Jewish young adults to come to Israel. Masa offers grants and needs-based scholarships to help make the experience more affordable, and provides information about other grants and scholarships available for long-term Israel programs from third party organizations. Masa provide every eligible participant a grant towards participating in a program in Israel. Grant amounts are determined by factors such as age, home country, length of program, etc. In addition, need-based scholarships are available.
Masa Israel’s grants and scholarships are a gift of the Government of Israel and The Jewish Agency for Israel, made possible through the generous contributions of the Jewish Federations of North America and Keren Hayesod-UIA.
It is strongly recommended to contact your local Jewish Federation and synagogue to see what kinds of scholarships might be available in your area.
For more scholarship and funding options we also recommend Masa's "Find Additional Funding" page.
