Helyn B. Reich Scholarship for University Students in Israel

Each year, the American Zionist Movement (AZM) grants Helyn B. Reich Scholarships to a limited number of American students who have been accepted and will attend one of several designated Israeli universities for a year or semester (preference given to full-year students). The Helyn B. Reich Memorial Scholarship seeks to honor candidates who demonstrate past pro-Israel activity and a commitment to future involvement with Israel and the Jewish community. Financial need will also be considered, though more emphasis will be placed on merit. Recipients of the Helyn B. Reich Scholarship will be expected to remain involved with the American Zionist Movement following their return to the United States. The scholarship is named in memory of the wife of a past AZM president whose daughter studied at Tel Aviv University and now lives in Israel.

Reich scholarships are awarded each fall and spring to a limited number of American students who choose to study at one of several designated Israeli universities or attend post-college long-term programs. The scholarship seeks to recognize candidates who have demonstrated academic excellence, pro-Israel activity in their personal lives and show a commitment to future involvement with the Jewish and Zionist community. Preference is given to candidates who decide to spend the full year in Israel.
