Bloom Scholars

For recent college graduates committed to personal growth

Recent college graduates who have demonstrated a deep commitment to personal growth and investment in Jewish community-building are eligible for a Bloom Scholarship. To be considered, applicants must include a letter from a campus Jewish professional (Hillel, JLIC, Chabad, Olami or other) as one of the two required letters of recommendation.

BLOOM Scholars are full-time participants of the Pardes Year/Semester program, with flexibility to attend for the full year or a single semester.

Admissions are rolling, with financial aid priority given to earlier applicants.

All BLOOM Scholars will receive:

  • A living expenses grant ranging from $200-$400/month (exact amount determined by financial need)
  • Highly subsidized Year Program tuition: $3,000 discount for those not eligible for Masa Israel Journey funding / $2,000 discount for those eligible for Masa funding
