The Right To Learn Scholarship
Are you a former or current New York ultra-Orthodox Yeshiva student passionate about pursuing a college degree?
We want to help.
Getting your degree may be challenging. Paying for it shouldn't be.
The goal of the Yaffed Scholarship Program is to provide financial assistance to those seeking to acquire higher education. Scholarship funds are to be used towards college tuition.
While there is no cost to apply for the scholarship, recipients will be required to contribute to Yaffed’s mission in a way that is best suited to them. There are several options to fulfill this requirement, such as being featured on Yaffed’s UnEducated Podcast, writing an op-ed to be published in a news outlet, meeting with elected officials to discuss the state of yeshiva education, speaking at press conferences, and being featured in social media campaigns and videos.
Due to the sensitive nature of this issue, we understand that some applicants may not be comfortable being involved publicly in our mission. In that case, we are happy to discuss opportunities for individuals to contribute anonymously.
Please email firstname.lastname@example.org with any questions.
