The Jewish Federation of Sarasota-Manatee is proud to offer scholarships for hundreds of Israel programs. Through our Send-a-Kid-to Israel Program (S.K.I.P.), we make it possible for local Jewish people between the ages of 13 and 30 to experience Israel through travel, education, military, internships and volunteering. Eligible applicants must be accepted to an accredited program (BBYO, NFTY, USY, Young Judaea, Emma Kauffman, etc.) and can apply here before April 4, 2014.

For 18-30 year olds interested in long-term Israel programs (5-12 months) through MASA Israel Journey, the Federation offers travel scholarships up to $2,000 on a first-come, first serve basis. Applicants must be accepted to a MASA program. Our scholarship application can be found here.

For more information about these or other teen/young adult travel to Israel, contact Amber Ikeman at 941.343.2106 or
