Community Fund for Israel Experience

The Macks Center for Jewish Education is proud to administer the Community Fund for Israel Experiences (CFIE), established by THE ASSOCIATED: Jewish Community Federation of Baltimore.

CFIE is a program funded by THE ASSOCIATED:Jewish Community Federation of Baltimore and some of its most dedicated contributors to ensure that as many young people as possible have the opportunity to visit, have positive experiences and study in Israel as a way to enhance and grow Jewish identity.

CFIE provides limited, need-based scholarships to high-school and first year post-high school students who are residents of Baltimore City or Baltimore County.  We strongly encourage students to research and apply for other scholarships.  You may find other opportunities on the link to the right.

If you are not familiar with the FACTS Scholarship Application please click on the link to the right to learn about FACTS before completing the FACTS application.

The deadline for class trips and January semester programs was November 16, 2017. 

The deadline for summer 2018 and 2018/19 gap year programs was April 10, 2018. 

Attention Parents: We hope to have letters in the mail with scholarship decisions by the end of June.
