About the sponsor:

The Philadelphia Impact Fund was created by Hans and Gloria Schott, to enable Jewish high school students from the Philadelphia area to explore and discover their connection to the land, people, history and culture of Israel.  It was of great importance to the Schotts (z”l) to promote Zionist education and create future Zionist leaders.

The Philadelphia Impact Fellowship was also made possible by a grant from The JNF Boruchin Israel Education and Advocacy Center.

*Full tuition covered minus $350 deposit. All Impact Fellows are also required to fulfill a $650 fundraising goal through JNF Plant Your Way
