Congratulations on your decision to attend a Jewish day camp this summer! You will have a summer to remember!

The Tallahassee Jewish Federation is pleased to provide a limited number of need-based grants to encourage youth to participate in residential Jewish summer camps and Israel programs.

In cooperation with area synagogues and other Jewish organizations, the Tallahassee Jewish Federation strives to help each family fund the maximum amount of tuition possible. We do this by encouraging the family to combine Federation grants with grants from other sources. However, no funding level can be guaranteed. Funding is need-based.

Awards will be made by the beginning of May 2017 to give participants time to secure additional funding if necessary.

  1. Applicants must be Jewish.
  2. Applicants must be year-round residents of Tallahassee or the Big Bend area.
