MASA is an organization funded by the Jewish Agency for Israel and the government of Israel to help fund people who want to go on Israel programs. On their website is a list of all eligible programs. Their scholarships are available when signing up for a long term Israel program.
Jewish Federations, synagogues, Jewish Community Centers and other community organizations have provided numerous scholarships for Year Course participants. We encourage you to seek out and contact these funding sources.
Plant Your Way allows students to raise money for their trips to Israel, and help Israel at the same time. The program is simple! Once registered for PYW, students ask their family and friends to make donations in support of JNF’s forestry projects in Israel. Half of all the funds raised will go towards JNF projects, and the other half is held in an account for the student to be used for their trip. More information about Plant Your Way.
