The Alisa Flatow Memorial Scholarship Fund is dedicated to the memory of Alisa Flatow, a 20-year-old student studying in Israel murdered in a terrorist attack in near the settlement of Kfar Darom on April 9, 1995. Alisa was in Israel to study her religion and to live among the Israeli people.

The Alisa Flatow Memorial Scholarship Fund has been established to encourage others to follow in Alisa's footsteps in a year long program offering the full-time pursuit of traditional Jewish studies at schools in the State of Israel.

The number of scholarships is quite limited and are awarded on a competitive basis. To qualify for a scholarship award, studies must be of a post-high school nature. Study can be in programs which earn college credits. (For instance, a student may attend a yeshiva and receive credits which may be applied to a degree program at a University.) Programs at Israeli universities and institutions and other organizations that combine secular and Judaic studies will be reviewed by the Fund's Committee to determine eligibility on a case by case basis. In all cases, an approved institution must have a 501(c)3 tax-exempt status and must also have an American affiliate mailing address.

Awards are given based on a combined scholarship and need basis. The intention of the Alisa Flatow Memorial Scholarship Fund is for it to be especially valuable to those students students showing academic promise in their religious studies and the need for financial assistance to pursue study in Israel. Students already studying in Israel should not apply for the scholarship, as other programs exist to assist them.
