Sisterhood Scholarship Requirements for Temple Shalom Scholarship Program
The following youth scholarships are offered through Temple Shalom’s Scholarship Program (note that the first two listings qualify as domestic trips):
- Greene Family Camp
- Miscellaneous Youth Scholarships – this includes NFTY
- Overseas Trips – Garin Greene Teen Tour Trips to Israel, March of the Living Scholarships, or any other Israel tour approved by the Temple Shalom Scholarship Committee
Sisterhood participates in a centralized Temple Shalom Scholarship program. In order for a child of Temple Shalom to receive any monies from the centralized scholarship program, parents must be Temple Shalom Members. Scholarships are issued strictly on the basis of financial need, with preference given to URJ sponsored events. A representative from Sisterhood will sit on the committee to work with clergy, staff, and other auxiliaries to assure the scholarship funds are distributed in an equitable manner. Transportation assistance may be available at the discretion of the Scholarship Committee.
Additional funds are available through Sisterhood for those seeking financial aid with overseas trips (Garin Greene Teen Tour Trips to Israel, March of the Living Scholarships, or any other Israel tour approved by the Temple Shalom Scholarship Committee). The dollar amount of these scholarships is at the discretion of Sisterhood, separate from the centralized program. Applicants applying for these funds must have completed 20 hours of community service supported by Temple Shalom (and/or its auxiliaries).
Forms for all scholarship requests are available on the Temple website, and must be returned to the Temple Executive Director. We ask that community service hours be submitted along with the application. Funds will not be disbursed until 20 hours of service are completed and reviewed by Sisterhood’s Scholarship Chair. For questions, please contact Sisterhood’s Scholarship Chair.
