During Federation’s annual budgeting process, the Board of Directors allocates a gross dollar amount to Jewish Camping Scholarships. An anonymous Scholarship Committee is appointed to review individual applications, which are submitted anonymously. The Committee determines the appropriate amounts to be distributed for Summer Camp Scholarships to local and regional sleep-away camps.
Financially need-based scholarships are awarded to individuals only, not to institutions, and are based upon financial need. The scholarship monies are paid directly to the camps, which credit the camper’s account accordingly. Scholarships are granted only for that portion of camp tuition which contains direct Jewish content.
