The Alisa Flatow Memorial Scholarship Fund is dedicated to the memory of Alisa Flatow, a 20 year old student studying in Israel killed in a terrorist attack in near the settlement of Kfar Darom on April 9, 1995. Alisa was in Israel to study her religion and to live among the Israeli people.
The Fund has been established to encourage others to follow in Alisa's footsteps by studying Judaism at schools in the State of Israel.
To qualify for a scholarship award, studies must be of a post-high school nature. Study can be in programs which earn college credits. (For instance, a student may attend a yeshiva and receive credits which may be applied to his degree program at a University.) Programs at Israeli universities combining secular and Judaic studies will be reviewed by the Fund's Committee to determine eligibility on a case by case basis.
The Fund is administered by a Committee consisting of members of Alisa's family and her community. Awards will be based on a combined scholarship and need basis. The intention of the Fund is for it to be especially valuable to those students showing academic promise in religious studies and the need for financial assistance to pursue study in Israel. The scholarship is open to men and women who are not currently in Israel.
