BIMA and Genesis Scholarship Opportunities
Campership Incentives for Jewish First-Time Campers
|Students who have never previously attended a Jewish summer camp may qualify for a $1,000 incentive grant from the Foundation for Jewish Camp. This is a non-needs based incentive program, intended to encourage students to participate in a first-time, daily immersive summer Jewish experience. Unfortunately, students who attend a day school are not eligible for this program. To apply for this grant, please visit One Happy Camper and complete the online form.

Opportunities for Students from Russian-speaking Families
Other Sources of Scholarship Money
Each year, the total amount of aid requested by families is greater than the total amount of scholarships BIMA and Genesis can award. We are committed to making it possible for applicants who we accept to attend our programs. However, we strongly encourage you to also explore scholarship possibilities in your own community such as synagogues, JCCs, and local Jewish Federations, and Hebrew Free Loan Society. We are happy to speak on the phone to make suggestions and will do our best to help you find the aid that you need to attend one of our programs.
Residents of Alabama, Arkansas, Louisiana, Mississippi, Oklahoma, Tennessee or Texas could be eligible for a camp scholarship through the Jewish Regional Children's Service.
