Hillel Scholarship Application

Please fill out this application in order to receive a Hillel scholarship for a Jewish immersive experience or conference.

Scholarships are awarded based on several factors including but not limited to: Total cost of the trip, Total scholarship funding available, potential impact on the participant, potential impact on Cal’s Jewish community, etc.
Although Scholarships from Hillel rarely cover the whole cost of a trip, we encourage and will help students find other sources and methods of fundraising to help minimize the out of pocket cost to the student.

Berkeley Hillel believes that it is not only important to support student participation in experiences that will impact them personally and Jewishly, but also in facilitating the student bringing the experience back to campus to enrich our community. After submitting the application, you will be contacted by a member of the staff to set up a time to discuss the application and scholarship award. After the trip, we will email you with instructions for receiving your reimbursement, and ask you to tell us about the experience.

Hillel scholarships are processed as reimbursements. After you pay for the trip, and once you return, we will write you a check for the scholarship amount. But more about that later…
