Financial Aid

We are committed to making Jewish learning as financially accessible as possible. If costs are a barrier, we encourage you to speak with your rabbi or education director about Prozdor support and to indicate on your Prozdor registration form if you would like to apply for financial aid.

Financial aid is awarded on a rolling basis. Once all paperwork is submitted, you will be notified of your award within two weeks. The earlier you apply for financial aid, the greater likelihood that you will receive it.

Please reach out to Rabbi Laura at lbellows@hebrewcollege.edu if you would like to discuss any aspect of your teen’s Prozdor experience. We look forward to hearing from you!
