Applications for Summer Camp Scholarships Now Accepted
The Jewish Community Foundation is pleased to announce limited, need-based scholarships for Jewish children in Maricopa County to attend Jewish summer camps in the United States. Scholarship requests should be “last resort” funds, supplementing financial aid provided by the camp, family, synagogue, and all other possible sources. Applicants must be in grades K-11 for the current school year.
Funding priority is given to overnight, immersive experiences. Day camp assistance will only be awarded if funds remain available after overnight camping awards are made. Programs in Israel do not qualify, even if sponsored by a U.S. camp. Additional guidelines can be found on the scholarship application.
Funding is made possible by a generous grant from the Molly Blank Fund of the Jewish Community Foundation and endowment funds established at the Jewish Community Foundation by Jack Bromfield and by the families of Labe Eric Targovnik and Kenneth Maltenfort for the dual purposes of reducing the financial burden of camping on Jewish families, and encouraging Jewish families to enroll their children in an immersive Jewish camping experience.
Completed scholarship applications must be received by the Jewish Community Foundation no later than March 1, 2018. The Foundation will notify applicants regarding scholarship decisions by April 11, 2018.
