Grants Ensure That More Children Realize The Dream Of A Jewish Education At Abrams Hebrew Academy
— by Chris Frangicetoo
Abrams Hebrew Academy announced that two new scholarship opportunities are available for the coming academic year thanks to generous grants it has recently received from The Jewish Day School Collaborative, a project of the Kohelet Foundation, and the Henrietta Milstein Scholarship Program.
The Jewish Day School Collaborative, a project of the Kohelet Foundation, has provided funding for a select number of students in grades K-8 to receive tuition grants and scholarships. Each student will receive up to 33% of tuition at day schools throughout Greater Philadelphia and South Jersey, up to $5,000 for lower and middle school.
The second opportunity is made possible by The Henrietta Milstein Scholarship Program. These needs-based scholarships for grades 1-3 ensure that more children will realize the dream of a Jewish education at Abrams Hebrew Academy. Each student will receive up to 33% of tuition.
More after the jump.
“Our mission is to encourage and challenge our students to develop an understanding of both their Jewish and American heritages while providing them the educational foundation to become future leaders and active citizens in their communities,” said Rabbi Ira Budow, Director. “Thanks to these generous grants we are better positioned to provide students with affordable education in an environment that fosters scholastic enrichment and a commitment to Judaism and the State of Israel.”
For more information on eligibility for these grants and scholarships, please contact Dale Sattin, Director of Development at Abrams Hebrew Academy at 215-493-1800 ext 22 or [email protected].
