  • Submitting an application does not guarantee a scholarship award.
  • Scholarship recipients are responsible for covering their own cost of travel to/from the event. We encourage you to seek support from your rabbi's discretionary fund or other local resources. In the past, people have received donated airline miles or other support from members of their congregations as well.
  • If awarded a scholarship, I agree to sign up for a 1-hour shift at the check-in table when the volunteer forms are published.
  • I have read and understand these terms and conditions of receiving a conference scholarship.
