The H.A. and I.R. Friedman Scholarship Fund was created in 1984 to assist youth from Edmonton to go to Israel. If you are between the ages of 15 and 25 years, live in or within 25 kilometres of Edmonton and are interested in travelling to Israel to learn the Hebrew language and participate in one of the programs created by The American Zionist Youth Foundation or The Youth and Hechalutz Department of Israel, you are eligible for the scholarship.
Applications can be made anytime throughout the year.
Examples of supported organizations are:
- March of the Living
- Mesa Programs (i.e. internship, Gap Year, Teen Journey, Volunteer in Israel, Study in Israel, etc.)
- Young Judea
- USY (USCJ’s Youth Movement)
- Friends of Israel Scouts
- B’nei Akiva
- Habonim Dror North America
Scholarships are granted on the merits of the applicants and the program they would like to participate in and financial need WILL NOT be a criterion of merit. The selection committee will interview all applicants which it considers are possible recipients of a scholarship.
The chair of the scholarship committee is Barry Slawsky. If you have questions or want an application, contact Barry at 780-887-3432 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
