MICROGRANT

What is a Microgrant?

Do you want to throw a Yom Ha’atzmaut bash? Bring a Middle East expert to campus? Organize a conference on different types of hummus?

We provide funding for campus initiatives that publicly support Israel. Just let us know what you’re planning and we’ll help you get it rolling!

Microgrants are awarded to students, faculty, and campus professionals. Special consideration is given to initiatives that involve multiple pro-Israel stakeholders on campus.
