Financing your year in Israel

Scholarship is often available. There also may be funds that can be accessed to help defray the costs for you. While the Mesivta can make no guarantees, we will try to help in this area. Your local Shul may have some funding available for this. You should also be aware of these important resources:
· Your local federation scholarship. See here:
· MASA - A joint program of the Israeli government and the Jewish Agency, it provides grants as well as financial need scholarships. For more MASA information, see their website at www.masaisrael.org
· Oorah - Especially for people who were brought to Torah observance through them, there may be funding available for yeshiva study. See here: https://www.oorah.org/pre-app/tuitionassistance.php
· (The Alisa Flatow Memorial Scholarship: is not currently active.)
The Yeshiva University S. Daniel Abraham Israel Program: Enables you to collect FAFSA and TAP funds should you be eligible for student aid being you are technically enrolled through YU. Applications should be submitted only after you have applied and been accepted to YU, as well as been accepted to an Israeli Yeshiva.
