Intensive Course/Seminar Scholarship

The Intensive Course/Seminar Scholarship is a reimbursement grant that covers 2/3rds the cost and registration fee of an intensive course or seminar being offered within a Jewish context.

The JECC recognizes that in order for educators to create successful and dynamic learning environments for their students, educators require opportunities to strengthen both their pedagogic skills and Jewish content knowledge. The JECC thus encourages all educators to explore the rich variety of local, national, and international adult learning opportunities that matches their educational needs and interests by providing funding to offset the cost of participating in such courses and seminars.
