Thalheimer Israel Scholarships


Thanks to a generous endowment from the Thalheimer family, Jewish Federation is able to offer scholarships for young adults to study and travel in Israel.

How to Apply:

Please submit a 1-2 page description of the Israel program with which you will travel/study, including how you will benefit, what your experience will enable you to bring back to the Arkansas Jewish community, and a budget (indicating the specific amount you are requesting from JFAR) to Our office will then pass your application on to the Thalheimer family for consideration. Applicants are typically notified within one week of submitting their applications.

Recipients of Thalheimer Israel Scholarship funds must agree, upon their return, to write a short article on their experience for JFAR's Action newsletter.
