Part of the mission of Interfaith Peace-Builders is to send as many people as possible to Israel/Palestine. In keeping with this mission we have established the Scott Kennedy Memorial Scholarship Fund for scholarship matching grants - money that we can contribute to delegate expenses to help with the cost of the delegation. We also have a fundraising packet to help prospective delegates raise money to cover their delegation expenses.
The Scott Kennedy Memorial Scholarship Fund: Interfaith Peace-Builders has limited scholarship money to help with delegation expenses. In granting scholarship money, IFPB prioritizes those who would not otherwise be able to join. We also make scholarship money available to people who diversify our delegations and broaden education and advocacy work in the US. We strive to organize delegations diverse in age, gender, sexual orientation, class, ethnic identity, religious belief, and racial background. Scholarships generally range between $250-$500 per person. To apply, we have a one-page supplement to our regular application.
Supporting Your Fundraising Efforts: Because we know our scholarship money will only help so much, we also have developed a Fundraising Tips packet to give you ideas on how to raise much more yourself. We have had quite a few delegates raise between $1000-3500 using this packet and their own initiative.
