For more than 40 years, the Jewish Federation has made it possible for Houston families with financial needs to provide an intensive Jewish educational summer experience for their children by providing financial assistance for camp and Israel scholarships. Scholarship applications will be available and accepted beginning January 1 and are reviewed monthly. All scholarships are need-based.

The Federation also supports the efforts of our educators who work in our Judaic-centered schools across Houston.
