Congregation Beth Shalom annually offers scholarships to our children for a variety of purposes, including summer camp, Israel experiences, and others.

The scholarships available are listed below.

Because we are rewriting our procedures, and we did not do this last year, we are far behind on our process. Therefore, we’re asking that all applications be sent in to our Controller, Dale Caprara ( no later than a week from today, March 8. We will be trying to make scholarship decisions by the following Monday, March 15, mostly to hit deadlines for camps.
