Financial Aid

AMHSI-JNF offers need-based financial aid. Find our FACTS application, and submit no later than 90 days prior to departure. All AMHSI-JNF financial aid recipients will be required to participate in future recruitment efforts.


Regional Scholarships

Your local Israel Programs Admissions Director can help secure funding from local Federations, synagogues, and the like. Additionally, nearly 70 regional scholarships are available. See the full list here.


Payment Plan

Payment in full is required four weeks prior to departure. The deposit and first installment payment should be paid as directed. While there is no official AMHSI-JNF payment plan for the balance of the tuition, we are happy to receive a series of payments from families who would prefer to break down and spread out financial disbursements prior to the date due.


Plant Your Way to Israel

Students can raise funds through Jewish National Fund-USA’s Plant Your Way program. This crowd-funding platform was designed for individuals, under the age of 30, planning to go to Israel. Fifty percent of all funds raised will be available for contribution to your AMHSI-JNF tuition fees. The other 50% of earnings will be directed to Jewish National Fund. Get started today!

Hebrew Free Loans

The International Association of Hebrew Free Loans (IAHFL) is an umbrella organization for Hebrew Free Loan societies and organizations that offer interest-free loans. Each member organization in North America has its own rules regarding such things as who may borrow, the maximum loan amount, and the repayment process. However, all offer loans without interest. Loan programs meet a range of different needs and may include loans for education, emergencies, developing small businesses, healthcare and life cycle events and more. Please contact the HFL office in your area for specific details. For information on local HFL societies and their programs view this document.
