The following additional information pertains to grant requests for participation at the Education Summit at the 71st URJ North American Biennial in National Harbor, MD (Washington D.C. area) December 14-18, 2011.

  • The Women of Reform Judaism (WRJ) is sponsoring Education Summit Scholarships providing limited grant subsidies of $350 to support the attendance and participation at the Education Summit.
  • Grants are need based and priority will be given to those who are participating in a pilot program, attending the Summit as part of a team from his/her congregation or organization, and those presenting at workshops or the poster session.
  • Attendees are considered representatives of their synagogues or organizations and are therefore expected to share their event experience with their congregation/organization to help create fulfilling opportunities for Reform Jewish teens.
  • Congregations or organizations are strongly encouraged to subsidize, to the best of their ability, applicant’s participation at this event.
  • Grant applications must be received no later than December 1, 2011, and are considered on a first come-first served basis.
  • A maximum of two grants, of $350.00 each, will be awarded per congregation.
  • Applicants will be notified of their grant award after registering and prior to attending the Biennial. A check will be mailed to the applicant approximately 4 weeks after attending the Biennial.

Please submit a separate application for each participant.
