Introducing the Dream Israel Teen Travel Initiative!

Dream Israel helps Jewish high school students take the Israel trip of their dreams. Fundraise for a Jewish National Fund-USA project in Israel and become eligible for up to $7,500 in grants on qualifying programs.

 

Financial Aid

fin_aid@3x@2xGenerous Need-Based Financial Aid is available that may cover up to 50% of tuition. Find our FACTS APPLICATION and submit no later than 90 days to departure. All AMHSI-JNF financial aid recipients will be required to participate in future recruitment efforts.


In addition to our Financial Aid program, there are several other ways to help you with your tuition.


Dream Israel

Dream Israel helps Jewish high school students take the Israel trip of their dreams. Fundraise for a Jewish National Fund-USA project in Israel and become eligible for up to $7,500 in grants on qualifying programs. Dream Israel grants may not be combined with any AMHSI discounts. Learn more here.


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!


RootOne

Save $3,000 with a RootOne voucher by applying for one of our two qualifying summer programs: Your Way Israel or Roots Israel.
