Israel Experience Matching Scholarship Applications

Travel to Israel builds strong relationships with our homeland. MERCAZ-Canada is committed to encouraging young people to experience Israel through Conservative Movement sponsored programs. To this end, MERCAZ-Canada has a long-standing tradition of helping high school students and young adults from across Canada to experience Israel through trips under the auspices of the Conservative Movement.

The MERCAZ-Canada Israel Experience Matching Scholarships Programme will match congregational scholarships from Conservative synagogues to a maximum of $200 CDN. High school students, whose parents are members of a Conservative synagogue, and young adults (ages 18-25), who are members of MERCAZ-Canada, are eligible. For deadlines, applications, and additional information, please refer to the Matching Scholarship page.

MERCAZ-Canada with MERCAZ USA and Women's League for Conservative Judaism, run a biennial Israel Scholarship Essay Contest. This contest asks teens, ages 14-19, to write on a specific Israel topic. Five scholarships are awarded, and may be saved for future Conservative Movement sponsored trips. For more information, or to see the last question, go to the Essay Contest page.

Our ongoing Scholarship Programmes provide matching funds to the following programs. Additional programs may be approved on a case-by-case basis at the discretion of the MERCAZ-Canada Executive Director and President.
