Youth Merit Scholarship

The Jacksonville Jewish Center’s Setzer Youth Education Department seeks to reward exemplary participants with financial assistance to further engage in programs offered through Kadima, USY, Ramah, and USCJ sponsored programs.

Youth Merit Scholarships are awarded based on participation in the Center’s community by demonstrating an engagement and dedication to the following components:

  • Service – Volunteering at the Center
  • Study – Participation in a Galinsky Academy School or JTLI
  • Prayer – Attending Shabbat and holiday services
  • Engagement – Participation in USY Activities
  • Be a Mentsch!

Scholarship dollars are available for middle and high school students attending Sub-Regional, Regional, and International United Synagogue Youth sanctioned events, as well as approved Jewish summer camps and programs.

These events and programs provide experiences with Jewish peers outside of the synagogue that enhance the Jewish value and education provided by the Jacksonville Jewish Center.
