About the Sponsor:

The Greater New York Impact Fund, which makes the fellowship possible, was created by an anonymous donor to enable Jewish high school students from the New York area to explore and discover their connection to the land, people, history and culture of Israel. The Greater New York Impact Fellowship was also made possible by a grant from The JNF Boruchin Israel Education and Advocacy Center.


*Full tuition covered minus $500 deposit. All Impact Fellows are also required to fulfill a $1000 fundraising goal through JNF Plant Your Way. The fellowship does not include airfare and  includes up to 4 General Studies classes.
