SCHOLARSHIPS AVAILABLE FOR YOUNG AMERICANS to study in israel
The Helyn B. Reich Memorial Scholarship Fund was established in 1999 in memory of Helyn B. Reich, wife of founding AZM President Seymour D. Reich. The initial gift in Helyn’s memory was given by Mrs. Sarah Fischer and her son Dr. Stuart Fischer.
Reich scholarships are awarded each fall and spring to a limited number of American students who choose to study at one of several designated Israeli universities or attend post-college long-term programs. The scholarship seeks to recognize candidates who have demonstrated academic excellence, pro-Israel activity in their personal lives and show a commitment to future involvement with the Jewish and Zionist community. Preference is given to candidates who decide to spend the full year in Israel. Financial need will also be considered, though more emphasis will be placed on merit. Scholarship amounts generally range from $750 to $3,000.
