|Requirements & Benefits|
Membership in the Sinai Scholars Society offers a unique opportunity to explore your Jewish heritage, and we hope it will inspire you to continue your pursuit of Jewish education and active participation in the Jewish community. To ensure that fellows will be able to engage fully in the activities and course of study offered by the Sinai Scholars Society, we offer a stipend which will be awarded upon successful completion of the course and fulfillment of all program requirements.
Fellowship in the society continues after completion of the program, and in the coming months and years it will offer additional opportunities for members to interact with an ever-expanding network of fellow students and Jewish leaders across the country.
Because of the limited number of spaces available, we wish to ensure that those who are accepted into the program are able to make the most of the experience. The primary criteria for admission to the program are demonstration of interest in the offerings of the program and evidence of willingness to fulfill the requirements of society membership.
After you apply to the Sinai Scholars Society, you will be interviewed by the course instructor. If your application is accepted, you will be asked to attend an orientation session to introduce you to the program.
All fellows are expected to attend each of the eight two-hour classes that comprise the course.
In addition, as the course progresses, you will be expected to participate in at least three events:
At the end of the course, scholars must write a reflection paper describing their impressions of the Sinai Scholars experience. The reflection paper must be a minimum of one page.
Scholars are required to complete both the final project and the reflection paper in order to become a Sinai Scholar and receive a stipend.
