About the IMPACT! Program
FIDF’s premiere IMPACT! scholarship program grants four-year academic scholarships to combat and combat support soldiers from low socioeconomic backgrounds, enabling them to achieve their dreams of higher education. This one-of-a-kind program also provides funds to cover soldiers’ living expenses while they study, and gives them the unique benefit of direct contact with their sponsors in the United States. In return, scholarship recipients complete 130 hours of community service per year. Their contributions to their communities, both through service and their attainment of a higher education degree, help to advance Israel’s economy.
“After my parents passed away, continuing my education was financially impossible. An IMPACT! scholarship offered me a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity. There aren’t enough words to express my gratitude.”
