Camp Scholarships and Israel

Incentive Grants

 The Jewish Federation of Nashville is committed to providing aid for students wishing to attend Jewish camps and Israel programs. Camp Scholarships and High School and College Israel Experience Incentive Grants are available through the Federation.


Nashville area children attending a nonprofit Jewish overnight camp for the first time this summer can apply for grants of up to $1,000 through a program funded by the Jewish Federation of Nashville and Middle Tennessee and the Foundation for Jewish Camp.


In addition, the Mary and Harry Zimmerman Youth Exchange Endowment Fund supports an Israel Incentive Grant program. These grants are available primarily to 9-12th graders and college students. An incentive grant is a one-time award for first-time attendees on an organized Israel experience program to help cover the costs of participation.
