Student Scholarships

STUDENT SCHOLARSHIP APPLICATIONS MAY NO LONGER BE SUBMITTED. OCCUPY AIPAC HAS AWARDED ALL THE FUNDS RAISED FOR THIS YEAR. 

Historically, students have been key leaders in Palestine solidarity movement, including the ongoing organizing against the influence of the Israel lobby. Many student groups from across the country have already endorsed Occupy AIPAC. Email occupyaipac@gmail.com to add your student group to the list!

Scholarships:
There are several scholarships available for students to attend the Occupy AIPAC events and actions. If you are interested in receiving a scholarship, please answer the following questions in an email to occupyaipac@gmail.com.

1. Why are you interested in attending Occupy AIPAC?
2. How will you use your experience at the Occupy AIPAC conference in your local community?
3. What is your financial need and how much money are you requesting? (Note: Travel scholarships are available up to $250 depending on financial need and distance traveled.)

Fundraising is also ongoing for a general student scholarship fund. If you know anyone interested in donating to the scholarship fund, please direct them to the donate section of this website (make sure to write “student scholarship fund” in the campaign designation field of the donate page).

Fundraising:
Another great way for students to fund their trip is through individual fundraising in their community. We encourage you to reach out to family, friends, and local groups for donations (with the help of social media tools like Facebook, Twitter and Paypal).
